Tsuneishi Shipbuilding opens Shanghai office

Japan’s Tsuneshi Shipbuilding announced on Tuesday that it has established a representative office in Shanghai, China in a move to strengthen working relationships with Chinese shipowners.

Tsuneishi Shipbuilding said the new Shanghai office is an expansion of its operations in China where the group already operates Tsuneishi Group (Zhoushan) Shipbuilding in Zhoushan city in Zhejiang province.

“Chinese shipowners are progressing rapidly as the Chinese government advocates the Belt and Road initiative with the target of becoming a maritime trade superpower,” Tsuneishi Shipbuilding stated.

“The objective of the Shanghai office is to strengthen relationships with these shipowners by regularly calling on them and conducting market research, thereby gathering information on a timely basis for more effective and efficient business expansion,” it added.
