Is China building new naval bases? Join us for a conversation on Harboring Global Ambitions: China’s Ports Footprint and Implications for Future Overseas Naval Bases, a recent report on where China is likely to establish its next overseas naval base.

Harboring Global Ambitions draws on primary data collection of project-level financial flows dating back to 2000. A comprehensive review of 123 seaport projects totaling $29.9 billion at 78 different ports in 46 countries points to eight potentially viable short-term Chinese naval basing options. This analysis marks an important and unique contribution to better understand China’s global port financing portfolio and contend with China’s efforts to rule the seas.
