Primary assessmentrevealed that in different project construction stages, the benefit could be more than 13.07 billion RMB Yuan in 2010and 19.79 billion RMB Yuan in 2030, respectively. The monetary value tends to increase with social-economicdevelopment. To realize these potential benefits, however, calls for more endeavors.
