China's coastal city Tianjin plans to lay the foundations for building its Binhai New Area into an international shipping centre to serve northern China and Asia's northeast, west, and central areas by 2015, reported Xinhua.

By then, Tianjin Port's waterway classification will hit 300,000 tonnes with a cargo handing capacity and container throughput topping 550 million tonnes and 17 million TEUs, respectively, according to a new plan of the city.

To achieve the ambitious goal, the Binhai New Area vows to accelerate the construction of port infrastructure, logistics network, service system, and the oil tanker sector.

The Binhai New Area boasts 2,270 sq km in the east of Tianjin and serves as the closest doorway to the Eurasia Land Bridge for Northeast Asia.
