Hunan is a land-locked province located in central PRC. It has a population of 68.4 million. It is one of the six central provinces supported by Government's Central Region Development Strategy. Hunan is rich in navigable waterway resources. It has the third longest provincial IWT network in the PRC, with over 11,495 km of waterways, 107 ports and 1,880 berths. However, only 5% of the waterway and berths can accommodate vessels of up to 1,000 tons carrying capacity. Historically, IWT used to be the most important transport mode in the province. By 2009 it was carrying 10% of total freight ton-km, reflecting past low public investment in IWT compared to other modes. In 2009 the total IWT investment was CNY551 million, about 1% of total road investment.
