It would be a win-win outcome,” said Yu, who is also a CPPCC National Committee member, on the sidelines of the bodys annual session.Chinas southernmost city, Sansha, encompassing a number of South China Sea islands, is under the jurisdiction of Hainan province.Yu said the country also should step up oceanographic research in the area, and encourage universities to devote more resources to tropical marine studies.”The countrys oceanographic studies have been focused on oceans in the temperate and frigid latitudes. The study of the tropical marine environment and the exploration and development of maritime resources are far from adequate,” he said.He noted that China would be willing to share its research findings with other countries in the South China Sea area, just like it shares its agricultural technology with Southeast Asian countries.The country also should strengthen maritime rescue forces in the area because of the areas size, he said.
“There are more than 1,000 nautical miles between Hainan island and the southernmost territory of Zengmu Ansha reef. The helicopters and rescue vessels we have now are far from adequate,” he said.Related StoriesChina not to blame for South China Sea militarization: spokespersonAustralia should not conduct missions with US in South China Sea: former FMSouth China Sea must not be tool to contain China, advisory body spokesman saysForeign minister blunt on misperceptions of South China SeaPhotosCPPCC press conference on supply-side structural reformNDRC minister gives press conference on 13th Five-Year PlanEthnic minority delegates attend NPC sessionMoments at the annual meetingsChinas national legislature opens annual sessionReporters read work report at the opening meeting of NPC sessionSuggested for You10 new words in 2016 Work ReportNPCs spokespersons : Who is whoNew faces at National Peoples CongressUpstarts and startups: Post-90s entrepreneurs in ChinaHopes voiced for next five yearsChinas proposals on worlds biggest issues| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
