2) Wang reckoned newbuild prices have finally bottomed out but with the shipping industry showing “no sign of recovery” it will take another two to three years before shipbuilders are back in healthy territory. For the full wide ranging article click below

New policy to support ‘capable’ shipyards
---------
Beijing: Amid the harsh shipbuilding market, the Chinese government will offer favourable tax policies and technical assistance to ‘capable’ shipyards to help them develop greener ships.
“The capable shipyards are to receive tax incentives and technical support for greener ship ships,” Chen Bin, official from the National Development and Reform Commission said.
The development of offshore engineering products will be treated as a priority as well to diversify the Chinese shipyards’ products, Chen added. [22/08/13]

NDRC to ban new shipbuilding capacity Thursday, 22 August 2013 | 10:00 NDRC to ban new shipbuilding capacity
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) has announced that it will start to ban new shipbuilding capacity in order to resolve the overcapacity problem in the industry. It has asked all the relevant authorities not to give approvals to any new infrastructure project of shipbuilding, ship repair and offshore equipment.
An official at NDRC said it is very crucial to curb new shipbuilding capacity in this severe market situation, and the move will facilitate the update and transformation of the shipbuilding industry.

If YZJ is not considered as "capable", (first to build 10000Teu containers, most profitable), then National Development and Reform Commission is corrupt.

Basically the barrier of entry is not just raised by closed domestically. The next step is let the smaller yards be absorbed or die of startvation

It seems that orderbook has fallen drastically and deliveries over the next few years will fall rather drastically. If demand hold up, economies stable and BDI continue to turn north, perhaps we need not five years to move out of the dumdrolds

I think key to watch is shipping lanes around middle east and the uneasiness in Suez Canal

Shipping lanes around middle east are too remote to watch...Tongue

Alternative? How about import/export numbers in Asia countries?

RE: Shipping news
rerouting or delay in shipping will increase Asia/ Europe rates and if prolonged enough will spillover to intra-asia and pacific rates when resources are reallocated

Hmm good for the rates in the short term, but will it be good for the economies? The high rate will be used to compensated the higher costs and risks, will shippers really benefits in such a scenario?

RE: Shipping news
Congested ports, slow steaming, rerouting, etc reduces the supply of shippers. Supply shock should be more positive to shippers rather than cost drivers like oil price increase.

Too complex to say for the economies when input costs increase
