In archipelagic region that includes some 24,000 islands spread across 5,200 kilometers east to west and 3,400 km from north to south, Southeast Asia is defined by the sea.
The maritime sector is crucial to Asean countries’ connectivity, with shipping services, ports, shipbuilding and seafaring core activities in vast parts of the region.
