Coastal Economies and China’s Maritime Power.

Talk by Dr K-C Lin at the China Centre, University of Oxford

In gauging China’s bid to be a maritime power capable of  breaking up the American naval hegemony in the Asia-Pacific oceans,  Western analysts have largely ignored the dimension of domestic economic  geography. This research project examines the maritime economic models  of coastal provinces since the Dengist era to trace variations in the  physical infrastructure and investment vehicles connecting China to the  global value chain and transport and logistics links. Illustrated with  case studies of local policy framework and institutional configurations  for maritime economy and port development, Kun-Chin Lin shows that regional  variations have shaped national capacities and strategic options in the  South China Sea and the Belt and Road Initiative.
