Regional seas contain rich marine resources, major sea lines of communication (SLOCs) and a range of non-conventional threats such as piracy, illegal migration, arms smuggling and maritime terrorism. Economic development has provided the resources for maritime expansion amidst growing reliance on foreign trade and energy. There is greater dependence on long and vulnerable SLOCs in a region not without instability and the risk of conflict. Whilst military spending in Europe declined as a result of the peace dividend from the end of the Cold War, military spending has increased in the Middle East and Asia, reflecting continuing concerns over security threats. Much of this military spending has gone into improving and expanding maritime security capabilities. This emphasis on maritime security has resulted in new building programmes for the Chinese Navy, continuing investment in naval capabilities by India and recent naval expansion programmes by countries such as Taiwan, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Competition for resources and strategic access may increase the potential for conflict in maritime zones, especially in disputed areas of maritime jurisdiction that may include SLOCs and choke points.
