The Port of Gdansk in the spotlight of the Chinese media
On Thursday 22 October, the Port of Gdansk was visited by a delegation of Chinese media representatives who came to Poland at the invitation of the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency, to provide the Chinese public with some information about Poland, its economic situation and prospects for the future.
As part of their several-day visit to the country, the journalists who took part in the programme also stopped by at the largest Polish port - the Port of Gdansk. As they pointed out, their presence in Gdansk was not purely by chance. The guests' main area of interest was the activity of the port, its development plans, expansion of transshipment capacity and projections for the future.
There was particularly huge interest in the most extensive investment programme in the history of the port, including its expansion in the Gulf of Gdansk - i.e. the construction of the Outer/ Central Port, on which conceptual work began no more than a few months ago.
The main objective of the guests was to collect extensive material on Poland and the key projects which may have a significant impact on the further development of the Polish economy, in order to prepare a series of reports and articles in the press for the Chinese public, including readers of widely read newspapers such as Jiefang Daily, China Business News that the People's Daily.
After several hours at the port, the guests were taken on a trip around the Deepwater Container Terminal, where they gained a valuable insight into the operation of the largest container terminal on the Baltic Sea and could observe the terminal expansion project at its already advanced stage.
