Beijing, Nov.15 (People's Daily Online) --The three national pilot provinces for the development of China's marine economy — Zhejiang, Guangdong and Shandong — have been serving as the "three engines" driving the diversified development of China's marine economy.

China's marine economic landscape starts with the Liaoning Coastal Economic Zone in the north, passes a couple of provinces and municipalities, such as Tianjin, Shanghai and Fujian, and extends to the Hainan international tourism island, forming an entire blue economic stripe along coastal regions.

"Three engines" seek differential development

Song Junji, vice director of the Shandong Provincial Development and Reform Commission, said, “Island-rich Zhejiang province is building an international logistics island at Zhoushan Archipelago New Area that will play core roles in developing the province's marine economy, while Shandong is known for a large number of bays that can be used to develop aquatic farming, manufacturing and tourism sectors, becoming major areas for the development of its marine economy.”

According to the development plan approved by the State Council, the strategic orientation of the Shandong Peninsula Blue Economic Zone is aimed at many areas, including the modern marine industrial agglomeration area and core marine technological education area.
