Fuelled by the rapid growth of China's economy, there has been a new development on port construction along the coast and rivers in China, highlighted by regional cooperation, the collaboration between the port and the bonded area and the port economy. Currently, China's Ports have set the following short-term development targets: emphasizing on the construction of specialized container terminals; accelerating the construction of large specialized deepwater terminals and deepwater routes; making efforts to enhance the modernized technology application during the Port production and management; expediting the process of the port informatization; as well as boosting the transformation of traditional ports to modernized logistic centers. In five years, China plans to construct three huge ports at the three growth ''poles'' of the economy of coastal areas -- the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and Bohai Bay area -- while giving priorities to the development of large, intensive and specialized terminals so as to provide solid material foundations for the growth of the national economy and the opening policy implementation as well as for the fast development of the regional economy.
