Globalization depends on the free flow of sea-based shipping. International shipping underpins the prospect of further beneficial growth in world trade, particularly in Asia Pacific region. This provides both an opportunity and a challenge since sea-based globalization is vulnerable to disruption. Therefore, the international shipping needs to be stable and secure. For this reason, some major powers in Asia Pacific such as the US, China and Indonesia have launched their respective strategy in securing maritime in the region. This paper mainly seeks the common concerns between Asia Pacific governments and the role of ASEAN in promoting the maritime cooperation. Their common concerns most likely derive from challenges and threats that come from the sea and at the sea due to lack of maritime security and governance ashore, such as those happened in the South China Sea and Straits of Malacca. Accordingly, this paper proposes an inclusive and comprehensive collaboration between ASEAN member states and China, involving other major powers in Asia Pacific for the maintenance of good order at sea. This maritime partnership is vital for securing the economic development and prosperity as well as maintaining peace and stability in the region.
