Research of Sustainable Development on Waterway Transportation in China

With the development of expanding economies, waterway transportation has become the main transportation means in the process of international trade and domestic trade. When it comes to sustainable development, waterway transportation plays an important role in promoting the development of the national economy. Based on the sustainable development theory, its characteristics in China are analyzed in this paper. According to the characteristics of the economic development of developing countries, a comprehensive analysis of the sustainable development system is given. Some conditions of development of waterway transportation in recent years, especially 2013, are analyzed here. The evaluation criteria of sustainable development are put forward following the general principles and special principles, respectively. Some mathematic methods are used here to carry out the synthesis evaluation. The conclusions can apply to quantitative analyses of the existing waterway transportation modes in China for sustainable development. Moreover, some policy recommendations are also given, which may have a role in guiding the development of waterway transportation in developing countries.
