Ships Delay Sailing to Taiwan Port to Avoid China Military Drills
(Bloomberg) — China’s military exercises are making ships think twice about heading into one of Taiwan’s most important ports, creating potential delays for shipments of electronic goods.
Ships are dropping anchor at sea to avoid a military exercises zone located just outside Kaohsiung port in the south of Taiwan, said Jayendu Krishna, deputy head of consultancy Drewry Maritime Advisors. The zone, one of the largest areas where China is carrying out drills, is 15 nautical miles from the entrance of the port.
