"On Dec 5, 2016, Wang Jongbin led 14 officials from Zhanjiang to Phuket to discuss trade, investment, infrastructure and the development of the Phuket Deep Sea Port."

 

What type of vessels would you park in a deep sea port and why are they dealing with a relatively low level official for such an important piece of infrastructure?
