CDI Team Conducted a Survey at Liancheng's Overseas Fishery Base in Micronesia

From May 16 to 25, a team led by Dr. Hu Zhenyu, Director of our Sustainable Development and Marine Economy Department, went to the Federated States of Micronesia, and conducted a field survey at two overseas fishery bases of Liancheng Overseas Fishery (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. in Pohnpei and Kosrae of the Federated States of Micronesia. During the trip, the survey team met with the Vice President of the Federated States of Micronesia and leaders of the state government, and paid a visit to the Chinese Ambassador to the Federated States of Micronesia. Both sides showed high recognition and support for the base construction, and the plan to apply for soft loans from the Chinese government. This project has great significance for China’s construction of strategic hub for the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, and expansion of the room for development of the Blue Economy.
