CONCEPT PAPER

The sea is recognized as one of the most important issues in our time. In the globalized world, the sea is not only important for transportation and communication, but as an interconnected and dependable medium where many nations rely for their resources. The sea is increasingly becoming a vital strategic interest of many nations, both in economic and security terms. At the same time, a wide range of maritime challenges are emerging, ranging from the destruction of the marine environment, to transnational organized crime on or through the sea. The result is a more complex global maritime picture.

The traditional use of the sea as a Sea Lane of Trade (SLOT) or Sea Line of Communication (SLOC) have also been characterized by the attempts of user states to extend their economic and security interests at sea. The strategic yet fragile state of the ocean brings forward the need for stability. In order to prevent the breakdown of good order at sea, it is necessary for user states to place maritime security cooperation at the top of their agenda so as to build consensus for the establishment of a more comprehensive multilateral security cooperation framework in the foreseeable future.

The Asia Pacific, as one of the busiest hubs for sea transportation and trade, has enjoyed significant progress in maritime security cooperation, particularly in the form of confidence and capacity building measures. However, the region still faces various security risks and challenges, with non-traditional issues emerging as major trends. Managing irregular movements at sea, maritime search and rescue, preventing marine pollution, developing maritime human capital and countering transnational organized crime at sea, are the pressing issues affecting regional stability. Therefore, a more comprehensive awareness and closer cooperation and coordination among user states is increasingly required.
