This was part of the overall State Council initiative of 01 July 1999, under which the Chinese government split the top five Defense and Technology Corporations into ten new enterprises. These corporations are all large State Owned Enterprises (SOE's) under direct supervision of the State Council. These SOE's include the China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC).

CSIC is the largest group in China in the field of design, manufacture, and trade of military and civil ships, marine engineering and marine equipment. CSIC is a very large state owned enterprise (SOE) supervised by The State Council, a state authorised institution of investment, to combine investment with the industry, industry with trade, research and production, undertaking scientific & technological research and design on ships, civil vessels, marine equipment, production and sales of civil electro- mechanical products.

The first large order received by the recently founded China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation put an end to the history of no shipbuilding of VLCC in China. In April 2000 CSIC Dalian New Shipyard (DNS) received an order from National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) to build five 300,000DWT VLCCs. The contract amounts to USD400 million, 1,500,000 DWT, and sets the record in total value and tonnage of a single order in Chinese shipbuilding history.

In April 2000 the State Council of The People's Republic of China and The Large Enterprises Committee of CCP Central Government issued a notification appointing the leadership of CSIC. The State Council appointed Huang Ping Tao as the president of CSIC, and Wang Hui, Yu Shi Chun, Li Chang Yin, Zhang Bi Yi as vice presidents of CSIC. The Large Enterprises Committee of CCP Central Government decided to set up CSIC CCP Leadership Group, and appointed Huang Ping Tao as The Chief Secretary, Wang Hui as the Deputy Chief Secretary, with Yu Shi Chun, Li Chang Yin, Zhang Bi Yi, Hu Ji Zheng and Chen Tian Li as members.

Sun Bo, former general manager and deputy chief of the leading Party members' group of China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and dismissed from office for multiple violations. The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission said in a statement on 17 December 2018 that they had conducted an investigation into Sun based on the approval of the CPC Central Committee.

Sun was found to have violated the central authorities' political discipline and rules, deviated from the requirements of the CPC Central Committee, conducted fraud and damaged the interests of state-owned enterprise. He "concealed the facts and deceived authorities" during the CPC's inspection, failed to adhere to his ideals and convictions and engaged in superstitious activities for a long time. Sun violated the Party's eight-point frugality code by accepting banquet invitations that might result in unfairness in his fulfillment of duties, according to the statement.

Other offenses included not reporting matters to authorities truthfully and going against the rules to alter his family members' posts and seek profits for his relatives' and friends' businesses, the statement said. His acts of abusing power that resulted in huge losses of national interests, taking advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others and accepting money and property put him on the radar for alleged crimes of abuse of power and bribery.

As a Party member in a position of leadership and executive of a state-owned enterprise, Sun was disloyal to and dishonest with the Party, traded power for money, accepted bribes and showed no sign of restraint even after the 18th CPC National Congress and should be harshly punished, according to the statement.

Hu Wenming, former chairman of China's shipbuilding conglomerate and former chief commander of China's aircraft carrier program, is being investigated for suspected serious violations of discipline and law, China's top anti-graft agency said 13 May 2020. Hu, former Party chief and chairman of the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC), was being investigated by the Communist Party of China Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission. Born in 1957, Hu had worked in several major Chinese state-owned arms companies including military aircraft developer and manufacturer Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), armored vehicle and munition developer China North Industries Group Corporation (NORINCO), and China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and eventually CSIC, according to the People's Daily. As the chief commander of China's aircraft carrier program, Hu oversaw the development of China's first domestically developed aircraft carrier and also the country's second one, later known as the Shandong, when it was commissioned into the Chinese Navy in December 2019. On August 30, 2019, Hu, then aged 62, retired from his position as CSIC's Party chief and chairman, the company announced. CISC, now merged with the CSSC, was responsible for the research, design, production, testing and support missions for naval weaponry and equipment including aircraft carriers, conventional and nuclear powered submarines, surface vessels and underwater weapons. Each military project would involve many units, and the group company, namely the CSIC, is only responsible for the overall and comprehensive strategy, for which a collective decision-making mechanism is applied. Although Hu was the chief commander of the Chinese aircraft carrier project, the aircraft carrier is a complicated and high-tech project, and it requires the collective efforts of the whole team instead of one man, so China will continue to push forward its aircraft carrier projects as it has very mature, talented scientists and engineers.
