The former document established consensus on consultation, policy and planning, the business environment, foreign trade, cultural exchanges, infrastructure interconnection, port and hinterland interaction and think tank cooperation.
The latter agreement reached a consensus among the six members on reducing logistics costs at Jinzhou Port, promoting resource integration at the port and improving its service efficiency.
Construction of the New Northeast China Land-Sea Channel will play an essential role in boosting the regional economy's high-quality development. It will help cities along the channel expand opening-up to achieve mutual benefits, said Wang Dejia, Party secretary of Jinzhou city.
