Description

China’s “string of pearls” consists of port and airfield construction projects, diplomatic ties, and force modernization. These “pearls” range from the coast of mainland China to the recently upgraded military facilities on Hainan Island, China’s southernmost territory. The String of Pearls strategy, despite common perception, is not just about India and IOR (Indian Ocean Region). It was originally coined by US scholars, to account for China’s perceived ‘strategy’ to develop blue water capabilities like a super power. As indicated in the picture above (Courtesy- World News, Politics, Economics, Business & Finance), this is an alleged global strategy of China. China’s String of Pearls strategy is the name given to a geopolitical strategy adopted by China arising as foreign oil becomes a center of gravity critical to China’s energy needs. This policy on the face of it appears to be an attempt by China to have an increased access to various ports and airfields in the South Asian region and at the same time to developing special diplomatic relations with these countries. As the book addresses this crucial issue quite deftly, it is hoped that it would prove to be a source of great information for the reader.
