The new port was designed and built by the workers themselves during the Cultural Revolution in what the information with this official Peking Television film describes as "a revolutionary spirit of self-reliance."
    However the people are reported to be not content with the achievements already attained.

According to the official information, the people endeavour to find out what their achievements have left to be desired so as to make continuous progress.

    A "three-in-one" group, comprising veteran workers, technicians and revolutionary cadres is formed to study ways of improving mechanical equipment and operational methods in order to increase efficiency. The unloading of coal from trains is fully mechanised. Members of the "three-in-one" group are now studying remote control methods of coal haulage.
