Is Xi's obsession for control stifling growth?
The port of Ningbo-Zhoushan is located about 250 kilometers south of Shanghai. It is the third-largest cargo port in the world. Almost 1.2 billion tons of goods were handled there last year alone. On August 11, one of the port's workers tested positive for Covid. The man had been double-vaccinated with the Chinese Sinovac vaccine, and also showed no symptoms. Nevertheless, before dawn, authorities closed the entire Meishan terminal, including the associated bonded warehouse. Large parts of the port were closed for three weeks. The container backlog has still not been cleared.
