As the city at the end of the East Zhejiang Canal and the southern end of the Grand Canal in China, the Ningbo Shen Dynasty makes the Grand Canal not only a water passage connecting China's north and south, but also a large passage connecting the world. Ningbo fully recognizes the significance of the Grand Canal's application for the World Heritage. In accordance with the deployment of the higher level government, it will do a good job of high quality and efficiency, and seize the commanding heights of the canal application. The Zhedong Canal was born in the Spring and Autumn Period, and it is the same as the current Hangyong Canal. It is an important part of the Grand Canal of China. In addition to communicating with the inland waterway in the southeastern part of Hangzhou Bay, the Zhedong Canal has its main purpose and core value, providing the Grand Canal with an excellent seaport that integrates foreign trade and the marine economy.
