U.S. Naval War College
Newport, Rhode Island
May 4-5, 2010
The objective of this conference was derived from the October 2007 Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower goal to “Foster and sustain cooperative relationships with more international partners.” The fifth annual conference of the China Maritime Studies Institute (CMSI) at the Naval War College continued a dialogue among Chinese and American specialists regarding the development of cooperation in the maritime domain. In doing so, it drew heavily on the experience of the third annual conference (2007), which framed the issues under the theme “Defining a Maritime Partnership with China.” This conference sought to create the intellectual framework for further enhanced U.S.-China maritime cooperation.
