The report focuses on the security implication of two strategic maritime areas that the maritime ‘Road’ will cross: the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea.

Key findings

  1. That the project will serve China’s core interests by expanding its maritime economic base, improving food and energy security, and projecting its power further afield
  2. As it stands, the Road may present a medium and long-term security risk for the European Union (EU)
