Press release   •   Mar 28, 2012 09:07 +08

Delivering today in Hong Kong and then across Asia and the world are thousands of copies of the launch issue of SinoShip magazine.

The weighty 80-page magazine details the state of the Chinese economy, provides news on the first Chinese pool of ships and analyses the contraction in ship orders.

With publishers Asia Shipping Media determined to differentiate their flagship title from the rest, much outlay has been spent on design and photography and the results have not gone unnoticed among the first readers of the title.

Comments include:

  • "Congratulations on the best looking shipping publication out there!"
  • "Ultra-cool, way to go!"
  • "It looks impressive."
  • "Very good selection of topics and very nicely written."
  • "The magazine looks good and reads well. Congratulations!"

Also in the magazine are exclusive interviews with the heads of SITC, BW, Sinopacific Shipbuilding and the Shanghai Shipping Exchange while chief correspondent Katherine Si provides readers with exclusive data on China’s vast yet under-reported ship repair sector.

Comments editor Sam Chambers, “It’s been a very gratifying response from the first readers, all very positive and frankly I am amazed at the sheer number of people reading our magazine online with more than 17,000 so far.”

Work is already underway on Issue Two of SinoShip, which will be at Posidonia in Greece among other places. The summer edition contains more interviews with the top names in Chinese shipping plus features on ship recycling and crewing while the offshore focus in the upcoming magazine centres on China’s FPSO buildup.
