CGN attends 2019 China Marine Economy Expo


CGN attended the 2019 China Marine Economy Expo (CMEE), which opened at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center on Oct 15.

The expo, which had a theme of "Sharing Blue Economy Opportunities, Building a Shared Future," attracted more than 450 enterprises and organizations.

In addition to an international exhibition zone, the expo featured four areas showcasing the achievements of the marine economy in the 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China (including the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area), marine resources development and marine engineering equipment, ships and port shipping, and emerging marine industries.

The blue-toned CGN pavilion showcased the enterprise’s current status and highlighted its achievements in ecological nuclear power, offshore wind power, sea water desalination, and marine ecology protection. The models of the HPR1000 and the offshore wind power construction vessel “Hai Long Xing Ye” attracted great interest from visitors.

Pang Songtao, senior vice president of CGN, attended the International Forum of Blue Economy Entrepreneurs hosted by China Oceanic Development Foundation, and talked with its director-general Sun Zhihui, deputy director-general Lv Bin, as well as China National Offshore Oil Corporation officials.

Pang also had a productive conversation with Ministry of Natural Resources and Guangdong officials about CGN’s marine-related works.

CMEE is the only State-level comprehensive marine economy expo in China. It has played a significant role in further boosting the high-quality development of the marine economy, enhancing international cooperation in the blue economy, and advancing the construction of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Since 2012, the expo has been held six times in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province, before moving to Shenzhen this year. It will play an important role in Shenzhen’s efforts in becoming a demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characteristics and a global marine center city.
