China's Maritime Power

The European Council on Foreign Relations published on 23 June 2017 an essay titled "Coming to Terms with China's Maritime Power" by Mathieu Duchatel.

The author concluded that the upcoming 19th Party Congress will consolidate the status of the PLAN as the key service providing protection to the next phase of China's economic globalization, characterized by higher levels of foreign direct investment, contracted infrastructure projects, and their associated loans. In Africa, the new Chinese military facility in Djibouti is an example of the PLAN's power projection.
