Malaysia's geopolitical location connecting the Indian Ocean, the South China Sea, the Nusantara inland seas and the Pacific Ocean is an inportant locational sustainable maritime resources, ready to be utilized more fully in political and economic terms. This lecture combines a geopolitical analysis with the theory of civilization and argues that Malaysia is a maritime nation embedded in a Nusantara civilization. The role of port cities and socio-economic connectivity for ASEAN integration is highlighted in this context. We show how different conceptions of space anchored in Nusantara and Sinic civilizations have an impact on the formulation, reliazation and success of maritime policies. In conclusion, the long-term impact of the Chinese maritime silk-road (OBOR) policy on Malaysia's position as a maritime nation is assessed and formulation of a new maritime policy is advocated.
