VIP guests visit a 380,000 DWT class Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC) during the naming ceremony of two Valemax ships built by Rongsheng Heavy Industries in Nantong, Jiangsu province May 21, 2012. The global shipping market, battered for the past few years by a severe downturn, will likely improve from the second half of this year, said an executive with major shipbuilder China Rongsheng Heavy Industries Group Holdings on Monday.
