The Ministry of Transport has unveiled a new guideline to promote maritime coordination in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
The guideline aims to elevate cooperation between maritime watchdogs to a level where resources are better shared, different standards are further mutually recognized and law enforcement bodies receive greater mutual assistance.
Efforts will be made to improve the area's maritime cooperation mechanism, enhance water traffic safety and actively promote the green development of shipping.
The guideline also calls for continuous improvement in water emergency search and rescue capabilities, an environment more conducive to the development of the shipping industry and coordinated development in the area.
Development goals for maritime services to be achieved by 2022 and 2035 were also outlined by the guideline.
