The other day, a Taiwan merchant ship "Hepeng 1", loaded with about 15 tons of cargo, entered Shipu Fishing Port, and it was the 34th batch of imports from Taiwan to Xiangshan Port. According to the latest statistics from Ningbo Customs, in the first ten months of this year, the total imports and exports value of petty trade with Taiwan by Xiangshan Port reached $4.427 million, up 170% over the same period last year.

As one of the first five pilot ports for petty trade with Taiwan (the other four being Shenjiamen Port of Putuo District, Mawei Port in Fujian Province, Shijing Port in Quanzhou and Huizhou Port in Guangzhou), Xiangshan Port has begun to import more food products, farm products and light industry products since last year. To provide support for the petty trade with Taiwan, Xiangshan Customs cooperates with such port organizations as State Inspection and Border Inspection to open a special window for the trade. It also greatly promoted the development of the petty trade with Taiwan by introducing some measures like 24-hour reservation for clearance.
