When 40-year-old Wenzhou tycoon Huang Weijian decided to give his first international interview he chose SinoShip, the global platform for Chinese shipping. Huang, a native from Wenzhou in eastern China, has made history by becoming the first Chinese national to own a cruise vessel. He speaks exclusively to SinoShip on the China cruise market and his plans to expand his fleet.
Access to key shipowners in the world's most vibrant maritime nation is what sets SinoShip apart. Also inside issue two is a revealing discussion with Mao Shijia, one of the most outspoken tanker executives in the nation who now heads up private concern Haichang Group's growing tanker fleet. Elsewhere, we catch up with the president of Taiwan bulker giant U-Ming Marine Transport.
The offshore focus this issue is on FPSOs, a sector China is a leader in, both in terms of ownership with Cnooc and in building these huge floating structures.
The logistics focus provides readers with exclusive data on China's intermodal rail scene, while features in the magazine that will be at Posidonia in Greece include ship recycling and crewing.
The magazine is bookended with insightful comment from a range of columnists across China.
Issue two of SinoShip will be distributed to more than 3,000 maritime professionals including members of the China Shipowners Association (CSA), China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry (CANSI), Hong Kong Shipowners Association (HKSOA), Taiwan shipowners and includes bonus distribution at Posidonia 2012 and JOC Container Shipping Conference Shanghai 2012
