So many issues, so little time!
The fifth edition of the Philippine Maritime Matters builds on developing stories from the past few months.
The political theatre of the South China Sea (SCS) continues to evolve as China's maritime militia takes center-stage, after being exposed more than a month ago. This gives relevant stakeholders sufficient data on how to strategically deal with China's gray zone tactics in the region. But it does not end there, and it shouldn't. The Philippines will have much more to do in terms of clarifying its commitment to its SCS claims and its China policy, but our servicemen and servicewomen from law enforcement are now taking strides in securing the country's national interests.
