Research on Financial Support for Transformation and Upgrading of Guangxi's Marine Industrial Structure

Guangxi is the only province in China that is connected with the land and sea of the ASEAN countries. It is also the front and window of China's opening and cooperation to the ASEAN, and an important gateway for the land and sea convergence of the new land and sea channel in the west. Guangxi's marine economy continues to grow rapidly, and the transformation and upgrading of its marine industrial structure are facing both opportunities and challenges. Firstly, this paper reviews and analyzes the development process of Guangxi's marine industry, introduces the resource advantages and basic conditions of Guangxi's marine industry in detail, and focuses on issues such as marine scientific, technological innovation, and personnel training. Secondly, the paper puts forward some suggestions and measures on financial support for the transformation and upgrading of Guangxi's marine industry structure, including increasing credit investment in the marine industry, innovating the financial service model, supporting scientific and technological innovation and personnel training, etc., which provide new paths for Guangxi's marine industry to achieve sustainable development.
