The key in the cooperation between the Dutch and Chinese offices
Gang Wu is senior project manager in Mastership’s Wuhan office. He onboards new projects for the China market, schedules the work for the local team and monitors the routine project’s progress. Being an experienced naval architect himself, he is always ready to help his colleagues solve problems along the way.
Gang plays a key role in the cooperation between the Dutch and Chinese offices. What is his take on cross-cultural collaboration? “It provides us with a platform for self-improvement. Working closely with the MasterShip headquarter has improved our day-to-day processes. With my colleague Tufail working in The Netherlands, who is familiar with our culture and speaks Chinese, communication is now more comfortable and has further improved.”
How does Gang see the future of shipbuilding? “Building big ships has been monopolized by the largest shipyards. Smaller ships are more specialized and thus require custom designs. Yachts for example, aren’t built by batch production. Each client will have their own wants and needs. This is where skilled ship engineers excel.”
Gang joined MasterShip in 2006. “I graduated from university in shipbuilding, and have worked as an intern at a shipyard. I am in a competitive field and enjoy being a skilled professional. Working at MasterShip I have improved in work and also personal life. I enjoy it a lot. My goal is to expand MasterShip’s activities in China, which I believe is happening.”
Tomorrow, on the 1st of october, China will celebrate the National Day of the People’s Republic of China. The Dutch colleagues at MasterShip wish Gang and his team a perfect Golden Week of festivities!
