Under the influence of the new crown epidemic, 2020 can be said to be an "extraordinary" year, and the shipbuilding industry is no exception. The "World Ship of the Year" 2020 list published annually by Maritime Reporter & Engineering News, a leading international shipbuilding magazine, has also shrunk significantly, from more than 10 ships in previous years to only 5 this year. This year, there are only 5 ships. However, among these five "World Ship of the Year", two ships built by Chinese shipyards were selected, both of which were built by Hudong-Zhonghua, one each by Japan's Shinraijima Shipbuilding and South Korea's Samsung Heavy Industries, and the other by Norway's VARD Shipyard.
