CSSC Cruise Technology Development newly set up CSSC Waigaoqiao Cruise Supply Chain (Shanghai) and CSSC Cruise Industry Development (Shanghai) to promote local cruise industry development.

Interios, lighting, video/audio systems and more

Located at Baoshan district, Shanghai, the two new companies aim to foster cruise ship and high-end vessel supply chain development locally, covering interiors, lighting, video and audio systems, network communications and other sectors.

They will strongly support domestic cruise ship construction and are intended to push China’s shipbuilding industry to a higher level.

Cooperation agreements with Gaodong

Meanwhile, CSSC Waigaoqiao Cruise Supply Chain (Shanghai) signed cooperation agreements with Shanghai Pudong New District Gaodong Town People’s Government, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Bonded Zone Joint Development to foster the cruise ship interiors business at Gaodong town.

China State Shipbuilding Corp., China’s largest shipbuilding group, announced its plan last year to invest RMB50bn (US$7bn) over the next decade to develop a complete cruise ship industrial chain in Shanghai.
