On June 15, Chen Zhao Xiong, vice-governor of China’s Hunan province and Li Xiao Wei, chairman of Hunan Valin Iron & Steel Group Co. Ltd. (head office: Changsha, Hunan, China) visited the NYK head office and met with NYK president Yasumi Kudo, representative director and senior managing corporate officer Hidenori Hono, and corporate officer Kazuo Ogasawara.
At the meeting, President Kudo expressed his gratitude for last year’s first contract for the transport of iron ore and his hopes for strengthening relations between the two companies. In response, Chairman Li emphasized his gratitude for the stable transport of iron ore that NYK currently provides and his desire for steadfast relations between the companies for their mutual growth, which is expected with the development of Hunan province.
Moreover, Vice-governor Chen mentioned that Hunan is a province that has seen rapid development, and is in great need of land transport to its inner regions, so he expressed his hope for the NYK Group to further enhance its wide range of services beyond the ocean transport of iron ore for Hunan Valin Iron & Steel Group Co. Ltd.
NYK continues to make every effort to remain at the forefront of transport services in response to increasing demand for the stable transport of natural resources and expand its domestic logistics business in China.
