Nansha, which generates 75 per cent of the total Guangzhou port's volume, saw throughput grow again for the 15th year in a row, as manufacturing migrated to the western side of the Pearl.
The port's growth is a feature of the GBA's own expansion, as the economies in the cities of Guangzhou and Shenzhen have matured from manufacturing hubs to urban centres. Like Hong Kong, these cities now boast a large population of consumers, and imports of perishables and consumer products are growing at double digit rates building a two-way trade for Nansha.
