The province plans to build 159 berths and increase the region's annual handling capacity by 400 million tonnes, according to local media.

By 2010, Qingdao Port, Rizhao Port and Yantai Port would all be 100 million dry-weight-ton ports, and four transport systems would also be set up for large containers, ores, coal and crude oil, the China Daily reported yesterday.

The combined handling capacity of the province's ports is expected to reach 620 million tons annually by 2010.
