It is the largest construction center for navy support vessels in South China and a high-tech enterprise with a national technical center and import and export autonomy.

In recognition of GSI's excellent construction quality, the Singaporean shipping company Berge Bulk gave an additional award of $10,000 to the Guangzhou shipyard.
