National legislator & Zhanjiang Mayor Wang Zhongbing (C) attended the second annual session of China's 12th National People's Congress (NPC) in Beijing.

In the past few years, Zhanjiang, a coastal city in west Guangdong, saw lots of large project coming in, such as Sino-Kuwait refinery project. National legislator & Zhanjiang Mayor Wang Zhongbing told media on March 7 that, Zhanjiang will participate in the central government’s modern marine silk road campaign.

Marine Silk Road

Wang Zhongbing said Zhanjiang was the starting port of the ancient marine silk road, according to the existing oldest archives. And currently, the central government has a plan to develop a marine silk road of the 21st century. This is a new chance for Zhanjiang.

Wang added that, on the one hand, Zhanjiang will focus on development marine economy, on the other hand, the city will strengthen its exchanges and cooperation with neighboring countries, such as ASEAN member countries.

Two Blue Strategies

Wang Zhongbing said, according to the plan, Zhanjiang will seek balance between economic development and environment protection.

We have “Two Blue Stragegies”, Wang said, one is “blue rising”, which means the marine economy; the other is “blue sky”, which means we put as much effort to environment as to the economy.

This is our strategy and it also answers to the social concern. If economy is rising, but environment has been polluted, it means this style, this road is failed. Our successful strategic road is making balance, the better development and the better environment protection, said Wang.
