Jiangnan Shipyard, established in 1865 during the Qing Dynasty, is one of the leading shipbuilders in China and regarded as cradle of China's national industry. The shipyard will expand its shipbuilding capacity from the current 800,000 deadweight tons (DWT) a year to 4.5 million by 2010. The Chinese mainland has been the world's third-biggest shipbuilder for the past 11 years, with a 20 per cent share of the global market last year, according to state media.
