a load of 40,000 tonnes of wood chips from the Vietnam-Japan

Port is able to accommodate cargo ships of other types
and sizes, such as bulk-cargo and dry-goods ships
of up to 30,000dwt. officials said the Kure's visit
marked a step forward in the development of the poor
province's maritime economy.
