the PLAN already has like 30 modern frigates plus around 70 corvettes for a total of 100 ships for patrolling the SCS & anti-piracy missions, do they really need more of those ships? if they want to build more ships just to keep workers employed then they should just build something much cheaper like coast guard ships or civilian ships that can actually make back some of the money spent on it.
The rumors have it that we are going to see a new frigate coming into production soon. Given the specifics, such a hull would be most welcome.

La corvette 611 Lu'an (六安舰) a été admis au service actif le 18 Janvier par la 14e flottille de frégate, basée à Zhoushan. C'est le 3e Type 056A entré en service depuis début 2020. Après 1 an d’accalmie, on peut s'attendre à l'arrivée d'une nouvelle vague de bâtiments chinois.

Not sure about this, but..
It seems there's an extra 056a at huangpu(#20) that wasn't accounted for earlier.

Overall, this'll be #72.

Breakdown by shipyards-
Liaonan - 14
Wuchang - 15
Huangpu - 21
Hudong - 22

There might still be a 056A still being constructed at the Hudong Zhonghua drydock next to the 054A/P. Upper most part of the picture.
