Japan’s Marine Economic Development and Competition with China

Authors:Bingqing Yang, Yue Liu


Japan has established a four-pillar industry by adjusting the marine economic development strategy according to the international environment. Japan has traditional advantages in government regulation, industrialization, sea-related personnel training, international cooperation and exchanges. The adjustment of its marine economic strategy will promote the development of its own marine economy, and at the same time it will affect China’s marine economic security to a certain extent. In addition to competition, China and Japan have certain cooperation space in the fields of marine fisheries, marine governance, maritime search and rescue, and advocacy docking. The development prospects of China-Japan marine economic relations are good.
