On Wednesday, a newly founded port-building company signed a cooperation pact with two American partners in Dalian, Northeast China's Liaoning province, to build a tourism port in North China's Bohai Bay.

The American investors are American Express Investment Bank Holding Group and MassMutual Investment Bank. They will invest in over 60 percent of the project.

The port will be located on Dalian's Qipanmo coastal waters in the Bohai Sea. The first phase of construction, with 1.45 billion yuan of investment, will start on March and finish by the end of 2012. A Ro-Ro passenger ship berth with a capacity of handling 5000 tonnage ships will be built by then.

By then, tourist passenger ships will reach Qinhuangdao in Hebei province, Caofeidian in Liaoning province and Dongying in Shandong province from Dalian, further facilitating trade and tourism in cities around the Bohai Sea, according to one Dalian official.

After the completion of the whole project, eight berths will go into operation, including two berths capable of handling 100,000-tonnage ships.
