       Review of Xiamen-Kinmen Sea Area

                  Management Seminar

    On April 21, 2007, the Xiamen-Kinmen Sea Area Management Seminar
was held in Xiamen University and co-hosted by Xiamen University Center for
Oceans Law and Policy and Xiamen Ocean and Fisheries Bureau. As is well-
known, marine resources and environment are both impetus and constraint to the
economic and social development in the coastal regions. The people in Xiamen
(a coastal city) and Kinmen (an island county) have very limited living space per
capita in terms of terrestrial area and have terrestrial natural resources per capita
far less than the international average level. But their sea areas boast significant
resources for economic and social development in these regions. Xiamen-Kinmen
sea area and its surrounding marine resources are of vital strategic importance
to the economic growth and social progress in Xiamen and Kinmen. Therefore,
strengthening the protection and management of Xiamen-Kinmen sea area, would
be of great significance to building Xiamen as a harbor city, establishing a Xiamen-
Kinmen co-development zone and promoting the sustainable development of
marine economy. Although there are abundant works on management of the use of
sea areas or coastal zones both at home and abroad, systematic research on Xiamen
& Kinmen sea area can be hardly found because of its particular geographical
position and relevant political factors. In view of this, the seminar revolved around
the management of the use of Xiamen-Kinmen sea area and the relevant issues.
    The participants were from Taiwan Affairs Office of Xiamen Municipal
People's Government, the Government of Kinmen County, Kinmen Administration
of Port Affairs, Kinmen County Marine Laboratory, members of Marine Advisory
