The twenty-first century is the age of the ocean. Especially when the land increasingly scarce resources to the occasion, to development the ocean become a new hope for the humanity in future. As the rich deposits of marine fisheries resources and energy resources, it became a fight for the ocean interests of the coastal state of marine primary national interests.
From the historical experience, the United Kingdom to benefit from the traditional sea power become the"empire on which the sun never sets"; while the United States during the Cold War victory is nothing but harmful to the marine strategy, results; and even China in recent years, the rise of Asia, also with the planned and systematic national strategy: Marine Strategy. Taiwan has traditionally been a continental power, but in the end of the Cold War, and the rotation of political parties, after paying attention to maritime interests, the national strategy within the scope of the maritime strategy began to be more prominent in their national strategies.
Oceanic Strategy is a sea power more easily than the misleading term. Is the Navy''s maritime strategy is not a strategy, but the context of the national strategy a part of. From a variety of literature review can be aware of, ocean strategy can be divided into the military elements of the classical tradition-based maritime strategy; and transform into a national strategy a part of marine strategy. In this paper, the traditional sea power of thinking, the use of sea power in classical maritime strategy, swinging in military strategy and national strategies for the U.S. maritime strategy, maritime strategy to lay a national strategy to get China''s Maritime Strategy For Taiwan based on the international community, as well as against the threat from China, it must be upgraded to national strategies maritime strategy is a more feasible option.
Taiwan''s maritime strategy can be carried out from three to explore for, namely, ocean policy, marine safety, marine issues. These three interlocking, but also to restore the complete picture of Taiwan''s maritime strategy. Taiwan''s ocean policy is constrained by the "UN Convention" effect, and domestic development of the ocean noise generated by the product out of correspondence. The integration of maritime security is the traditional naval strategy, as well as the source of the country''s economic lifeline at sea. Finally, there is the practical side maritime strategy, namely the South China Sea issues and the Diaoyutai issue, the two topics thoroughly demonstrates the policy of Taiwan''s maritime strategy in the thinking and practical activities.
Although Taiwan Ocean Strategy''s development from 2008 after the re-rotation of political parties, once again hidden and not obvious. Towards a national strategy no longer seems to develop from a maritime strategy, but since ocean strategy is proactive and integration capabilities in all matters, so whether Taiwan is able to a relatively high degree of integration and cost-effective way to combat future threats to become a future ruler subject worthy of serious consideration.
