Abstract

The Beibu Gulf Economic Rim of China is a key economic region in China as demonstrated by the “Beibu Gulf Cities Development Project” (2017) that plans to build a “Blue Livable Gulf” to balance environmental protection while providing sustainable economic development. This region has significant energy needs and is predicted to exhibit rapid growth in the future.
