The purpose of this thesis is to formulate a policy for guiding the sustainable development, operation and management of ‘Blue Economic Zone’ and put forward suggestions for the further development for ‘Blue Economy’ in ‘Blue Economic Zone’. In this thesis, based on the definition of ‘Blue Economy’ put forward by Dr. Awni Behnam—Living with the ocean and from the ocean in a sustainable relationship, the author discusses and analyzes the ‘fresh points’, importance and future of ‘Blue Economy’. As the practice of ‘Blue Economy’, the formation of ‘Blue Economic Zone’ expands the range of ‘Blue Economy’ and has the requirement of effective policy to play the role of guidance and principle for the reasonable development, operation and management of ‘Blue Economic Zone’. Therefore, many advanced methods of analysis and tools can serve for this purpose, such as Big Data, GIS, RS, EIA and Integrated Coastal Zone Management.
