China has approved a provincial proposal to build a supply dock in the South China Sea.
The State Oceanic Administration said yesterday that it had agreed "in principle" to a proposal by Hainan to build the dock over more than 3.3 square kilometers of sea off Jinqing Island to service Chinese tourism and fishing activities. Jinqing is part of the Xisha Islands.
A separate proposal to build another comprehensive supply dock in the South China Sea is under consideration, it said.
