Subsequently, all visitors explored the distinguished history of YANTIAN's extraordinary growth over the past three decades, driven by the winds of reform and opening-up. Emerging from a barren site in 1993, YANTIAN has evolved into a world-class port proudly achieving an annual throughput exceeding 14 million TEU today. The visit provided an intimate look at the remarkable advancements made by Yantian Port during this transformative period. From the elevated vantage point of the observation deck, visitors savored a sweeping view of YANTIAN, gaining a more tangible insight into the operations at this busy shipping hub. The meticulously arranged and vibrant containers, the well-organised traffic routes, and the mega-vessels docked alongside the berths portrayed the entire port as a sophisticated apparatus. This spectacle left everyone expressing gratitude to YANTIAN for consistently providing robust and unwavering support for Chinese enterprises to go global.
