Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the new mechanism of cooperation between the stakeholders in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore, including the littoral and user States, the shipping industries and others, and discusses its contents in detail. UNCLOS stipulates that all ships and aircraft enjoy the right of transit passage, which shall not impede continuous and expeditious transit and over-flight of the straits used for international navigation between one part of the high seas or an Exclusive Economic Zone and another part of the high seas or EEZ. The Straits of Malacca and Singapore, connecting the Indian Ocean and the East China Sea, are areas of vital importance to world maritime transport. They are especially important as the transport route for oil from the Persian Gulf to Northeast Asia, especially those highly dependent on Persian Gulf oil, including Japan, Korea, and China, whose oil imports have soared in recent years.

Keywords: exclusive economic zone; international navigation; Malacca; shipping industries; Singapore; stakeholders; straits; transit passage; UNCLOS
