Yangtze River Economic Belt to Boost Liangjiang New Area's Ambition of Becoming International Logistics Hub Oct 31, 2014 02:06AM

CHONGQING, China, Oct. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The State Council recently released its Yangtze River economic belt plan, in a bid to develop it into an inland river economic belt with a global economic influence. According to the plan, Chongqing has been named as one of the three major shipping centers in China, which will bring new opportunities for European and American investors to expand China's inland markets.

In April this year, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang inspected four-square-kilometer Guoyuan Port in Liangjiang New Area and praised it as a "first port". He expected that Guoyuan Port could create a kind of "big traffic" pattern, and link the huge markets of the Yangtze River economic belt and the Silk Road economic zone.

As China's first state-level inland New Area as well as the engine to Chongqing's development, Liangjiang New Area covers Guoyuan Port and Cuntan Port locates in the golden waterway of Yangtze River as well as  two Bonded Ports which connect to Chongqing from land and sea. Liangjiang New Area is seeking to become China's inland international logistics hub. To this end, Chongqing speeded up international logistics channel constructions - especially the one to Europe - which successfully promoted the rapid growth of Liangjiang's international trade, making it become an important investment destination for foreign investors.

On December 5, 2013, with a planned investment of 10.5 billion yuan ($ 1.72 billion), China's largest inland port - Guoyuan Port - officially opened. According to the Yangtze River economic belt plan, Guoyuan Port will launch a railway line connecting with Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe International Railway in 2015, which will realize railway-water-road through transport.

According to Chen Fuhao, director of the Investment and Development Department of Chongqing Guoyuan Port Ltd, six billion yuan of the 10.5 billion yuan investment has already been allocated. According to the 'port in the front and garden in the back' layout, it's planned to construct 165,000-ton berths with an annual throughput capacity of 30 million tons, including two million tons of TEU (Twenty-Equivalent Unit) containers, six million tons of bulk cargo, and one million tons of commodity and automobiles.

Guoyuan Port's ambitions do not stop there. According to the information provided by the constructor Chongqing Port Logistics Group, Guoyuan Port aims to become the largest container distribution center, bulk cargo distribution center, commodity and automobile distribution center, bulk means of production trading center and comprehensive services center in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River.

Data released by Chongqing Customs showed that in the first three quarters of this year, Liangjiang New Area's total import and export value reached 258.58 billion yuan ($ 42.3 billion), an increase of 1.1 times. Trade volumes to Hong Kong, ASEAN and EU, which are the top three trade partners, were 65.29 billion yuan, up 2.9 times; 53.71 billion yuan, up 1.5 times; and 34.97 billion yuan, an increase of 6.6 percent respectively. Liangjiang New Area is becoming an important international investment destination.

The FlatRock Group Announces its Trusted Advisor Alliance Oct 31, 2014 02:01AM

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Kent Leighton, Co-Founder of Construction Connection, is excited to announce the launch of The FlatRock Group's Trusted Advisors Alliance to help construction companies grow and prosper.

"In our high tech, low personal touch and instantaneous communications world we are not practicing and learning the important skills of listening, asking questions, and developing sound judgment and problem solving skills" says Leighton. He continues, "Everyone is so pressed for time and resources they often find themselves engaging consultants to tell them what they need to do to solve a problem when what they really need is a Trusted Advisor walking beside them to help them realize they have the solutions – they just need to be flushed out, no one knows you and your business like yourself."

The idea for creating the Trusted Advisor Alliance was born from visiting hundreds of small to midsize construction companies to determine what is keeping the owners up at night and limiting their potential. What we discovered is an industry of entrepreneurs and builders with limited time and skillsets to lead and grow their business coupled with the challenging fee structures limiting profitability. In nearly every case we found the owners and managers have the intellect and desire, but they just don't have the time or past experiences to flush out ideas, answers and solutions.

Companies tend to hire consultants to help them with specific problems and usually expect the consultant to tell them what to do. This is great if the problem is specific and linear; however, most problems are indications of greater operational processes and procedure issues that require time to fix and may be beyond a consultant's expertise unless he or she is part of a large consulting firm.

The FlatRock Group Trusted Advisor Alliance is addressing this industry void by assembling a group of Companies and Individuals with validated and proven track records who are on call 24 / 7 to provide unparalleled expertise and commitment to our clients.

By helping owners and managers identify why contractors fail we are able to zero in on a company's specific values, goals and processes to align them with the professional organization, product or service best suited to solve these problems and increase their growth potential and profitability.

In the following weeks we will announce the professional individuals and organizations that will comprise the Trusted Advisor Alliance and roll out the program in its entirety. "It's so exciting to walk beside business owners, leaders and managers as their Trusted Advisor rather than simply a hired expert" states Leighton. He continues "Our ultimate goal is to help them achieve clarity of vision and skills so they can produce more product and profits with fewer resources and always to be available with a listening ear and compassionate humble heart."

About The Flat Rock Group
The Flat Rock Group was created to help construction companies survive and succeed in today's complex and competitive marketplace by helping them evaluate everything they do against a set of time tested management principles and proven operational processes. We help companies understand that hiring more employees is not usually the catch all solution and will usually only exacerbate problems if hiring is not part of a well-defined set of visions, goals and processes. Our goal is to help construction companies understand why many contractors fail and provide them the tools and knowledge to make them successful.
