In all, 17 provincial and municipal governments in the country put forward to develop it and Guangdong Province also clearly sets its goal to construct a powerful province of yachts and tourism.
With a coastline of more than 18000km, China has over 6500 islands and 24800 lakes. Apart from being adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau, Guangdong’s coastline is the longest among all the provinces and numerous rivers are running through it. As for the host city of the expo, Guangzhou has seven rivers flowing through it and directly running into the South China Sea and its water area equals more than 10 times land area, which is quite unique among all cities around the world.
