Boats at Jianbi navigation lock

Fishing boats dock at the Jianbi navigation lock at the confluence of the southern Grand Canal and the Yangtze River in Jianbi, Jiangsu Province. As the only navigation pivot that links the Yangtze River and the Sunan section of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, the Jianbi navigation lock provides economic development opportunities in the area.
