Central and Eastern Europe ports are crucial for the relationship with China.

Central and Eastern Europe is crucial for the relationship with China. Each port should showcase its benefits and promote the quality of its location. China has great potential and opportunities to improve port infrastructure. An example is the Yangshan port in Shanghai, which will reach the throughput of 40 million TEU per year. The throughput of each of these ports should be improved, and best services at the lowest possible price should be offered.
