- Against the background of the global economic recession and the rise of trade protection, China has proposed and implemented the " the Belt and Road" strategy, and has set up a number of free trade test zones in China, including a number of free trade zones in inland provinces and tried to build free trade ports. This paper compares Wuhan port with Shanghai port, Hong Kong port and Singapore port, studies the gap between Wuhan port and world-class port by building a port competitiveness evaluation model, and looks for the possibility of breakthrough. It is found that the gap between Wuhan port and other ports is still huge, and the possibility of short-term replacement is unlikely, but the breakthrough can be made in infrastructure construction first.
