The background to the policy of tuntian is rather similar to the challenging scenario that China faces today as it seeks to take its development to the oceans. The effects of the policy of tuntian are also similar to what China seeks to achieve—or even exceeds its objectives—with its maritime development push. As such, it is necessary for China to introduce a tuntian-like strategy that can take care of both the defensive and developmental thrusts of its plan to become an important maritime nation.
