[SHANGHAI] China will allow 400,000-deadweight tonne ships to dock at its ports, the state planner said on Friday, officially lifting a more than three-year ban that had effectively shut out Brazilian miner Vale's giant vessels.

Four domestic ports, including Qingdao Port, Dalian Port Tangshan Caofeidian Port and Ningbo Port, will be allowed to receive the giant carriers after they meet technical standards, China's National Development & Reform Commission said in a joint statement with the Ministry of Transport.
