Why export to China

China is very rich in marine resources with a total coast line length of 18,000 km and 3 million square kilometres of sea area with administration authority. East China is close to the Bohai Sea, the Huanghai Sea, the East China Sea and South China Sea and they all contain abundant resources.

Strong Support from Government

In a move that highlights the state government's intent to thoroughly explore the country's vast marine potential, China's most recent five-year plan - the 12th Five-Year Plan - was the first ever to include a dedicated chapter on marine development.

In its last five-year budget, announced in March 2011, the Chinese government boosted funding for oceanography, particularly in exploration, research and deep-sea technologies.

As one of the targets of the 12th Five-Year Plan, in 2015, the rate of contribution made by marine science and technology to the marine economy should reach more than 60%.

Rapid Growth

In 2014, China’s gross marine economy including offshore energy, ocean research, marine renewables, maritime security & aquaculture amounted to 5.9936 trillion yuan (about 966.7 billion US dollars), an increase of 7.7% over the previous year, accounting for 9.4% of GDP.

In 2014, China’s offshore oil and gas production kept growing. Marine crude oil production amounted to 46.14 million tons, and marine natural gas production reached 13.1 billion cubic meters.

Oceanology International China is the leading forum in Asia where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the international marine technology and ocean science communities. Developed in conjunction with government and industry associations, Oceanology International China provides domestic and international suppliers the opportunity to capitalise on China’s rapidly developing offshore energy and marine industries.

In its third year, Oceanology International China continues through its structured networking programmes to link Western suppliers with Chinese buyers, enabling them to build relationships and develop business.
