OPENING UP THE MIGHTY YANGTZE RIVER

SUBTITLE: THE COMPLETION IN JUNE OF THE HUGE THREE GORGES DAM BLOCKING CHINA'S MIGHTY YANGTZE RIVER CAPTURED THE WORLD'S ATTENTION, MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL DAMAGE SOME BELIEVE IT WILL CAUSE. HOWEVER, APART FROM ITS CORE ELECTRICITY GENERATING ROLE, THE DAM'S SUPPORTERS CLAIM IT WILL ALSO BRING A NEW DIMENSION TO SHIPPING IN THE REGION. BY MAKING MORE OF THE YANGTZE NAVIGABLE FOR OCEAN-GOING VESSELS, IT WILL FURTHER OPEN UP CHINA'S UNDERDEVELOPED INTERIOR TO TRADE.
