Seamen of different countries are scheduled to visit each other's vessels and exchange their ideas. China has called on the navies of the world work together to combat threats such as terrorism and piracy.

Also, the Qingdao port will be open to the public on Wednesday afternoon so people can look at some of the vessels in Thursday's fleet parade.
