The 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative is a top-level design and an important practice of China’s peaceful development strategy. It’s combined with foreign policies proposed in recent years, including the new type of major-country relationship; principles of amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness; the partnership for development and the Asia-Pacific dream. To build the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road, we should properly deal with the relations between China’s development and the coordinated development among regions along the road, between integration into the current maritime order and establishment of a new maritime order, between establishment of maritime partnership and protection of maritime rights, and between a “go-all-out” approach and a gradual approach.
