On September 25, chinadialogue hosted its first event in London on the topic of China and the ocean at the Frontline Line Club. A panel of international experts shared their views on China’s role in some of the biggest challenges facing our marine ecosystems, from the loss of livelihoods and fish stocks in West Africa, to the scourge of ocean plastic, to the development of the Blue Economy.
