Abstract: China's outreach to the global market has increased its exposure to various traditional and non-traditional threats. These new challenges have triggered a fundamental revision of China's strategy concerning its security interests and objectives abroad. There is more support at home for actively protecting China's overseas interests. As a result, the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) has also started to redefine the tasks of its military in a way that will allow the latter to gradually complement the country's conservative continental strategies with more emphasis on long-range power projection. This shift requires the West to prepare for proactive and assertive Chinese posture toward flashpoints worldwide. Yet Beijing's persistent vulnerability will compel it to refrain from aggressive military unilateralism and to give priority to a collective approach.
