China's Maritime Silk Road

Maritime Affairs published in 2015 an article titled "China's 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative, Energy Security and SLOC Access" by Christopher Len, National University of Singapore.

The article discusses Beijing's latest attempts to secure China's energy supply across the Indian Ocean region and the South China Sea through which the majority of its seaborne energy imports transit.  The author argues that China's maritime agenda will be hampered by the strategic distrust and political risks China faces in the Asian region.  The article is available on open access.
