Strategic Implications of China’s “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” Initiative: Perspectives of ASEAN Countries
Maritime Silk Road Initiative
South China Sea tension
|Issue Date: ||2020-07-01 14:01:09 (UTC+8)|
This thesis utilizes geopolitical, geo-economic, constructivism, and complex interdependence approaches to analyze China’s Maritime Silk Road (MSRI) geostrategic implications in the Southeast Asia region. Besides, the framework of this thesis is to systematically analyze the South China Sea claimants’ and non-claimants’ perceptions, responses, and expectations to China’s MSRI program, which is an important research foundation to probe into the Maritime Silk Road connections and effects on South China Sea tension. This thesis analyzes Southeast Asia countries’ official documents, think tank reports, and local newspapers from 2013 to 2019 and groups ASEAN countries’ perceptions of MSRI into three categories of opportunities, challenges, and threats. Lao and Cambodia consider MSRI as an opportunity to reinforce the domestic economy and improve regional connectivity. Vietnam and Myanmar consider that the MSRI threatens their national security and sovereignty. The other ASEAN countries, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia view the MSRI half for opportunity and half for threat. Besides, this thesis categorizes ASEAN countries’ responses to China’s MSRI program into four types that opposed to approval, conservative and prudent, openness but discreet, and friendly and embracing responses. Furthermore, this author examines the United States, Japan, and India’s responses and interventions of China’s MSRI strategy in the Southeast Asia region.
