BEIJING, CHINA — China’s Ministry of Transport announced the full resumption of international cruise ship transport to and from ports in the country.
Trials on the resumption of international cruise transportation started early this year at ports in Shanghai and Shenzhen.
In its notice issued, the ministry said that local transport authorities at the ports where cruise ships dock should formulate plans for restoring international cruise transportation and proceed with the resumption work after obtaining approval from local governments.
