CHINA, EU TO BUILD INDUSTRIAL PARK ON MARITIME ECONOMY IN SZ
    2017-12-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A CHINA-EU maritime economy industrial park will be built in Shenzhen, which is expected to be a hub for maritime cooperation between China and the EU.

The plan was announced at the 2017 China-EU Blue Industry Cooperation Forum that was held in Shenzhen on Friday and Saturday. Hosted by China’s State Oceanic Administration, the event is the first of its kind between China and the EU, attracting nearly 300 Chinese officials, experts and company executives as well as more than 60 EU representatives.

Land reclamation for the China-EU Blue Industry Park is under way in Bao’an District and is to be done around 2020. By 2025, it will be fully operational, according to the Shenzhen Urban Planning and Design Institute, which designed the 1-square-kilometer park.

The park is intended to facilitate international cooperation in marine industries and improve scientific and technological research on marine resources, said Zhang Zhanhai, head of the State Oceanic Administration’s strategic planning and marine economy department.

The program was initiated by the Shenzhen government and has been endorsed by the administration and the EU’s directorate-general for maritime affairs and fisheries.

“The European side will spread information on the park among European enterprises and research entities involved in marine industries and will also recommend suitable partners to the park,” he said on the sidelines of the forum. “We hope it will attract companies with high-value products or advanced technologies.”

Plans call for the demonstration program to take advantage of Europe’s expertise in high-end intelligent marine equipment and Shenzhen’s high-tech manufacturing capacity to develop deep-sea submersibles, seabed robots and marine mineral exploitation devices for the international market.

It will also combine their know-how in new marine energy, marine ecological protection and databases to strengthen their capability and competitiveness in the global market.

Wang Hong, head of the State Oceanic Administration of China, said coastal provinces, which account for 14 percent of China’s territory, generate 60 percent of the country’s GDP.

“Ocean-involved companies provided 36 million jobs, and the gross ocean product exceeded 7 trillion yuan (US$1.03 trillion) in China last year,” he said.

He said China and the EU have been making joint efforts in governance, science and technology, environmental protection and disaster prevention and relief in marine sectors. They have made a lot of progress in these fields, he added.

Six companies in China and the EU signed cooperation agreements on maritime economy Friday.

During the 18th bilateral summit between China and the EU, both parties agreed to establish 2017 as the China-EU Blue Year.

It was decided at the 19th summit held in Brussels in June that the two sides would strive to build a China-EU Blue Partnership.
