We live in a world where America’s world dominance is beginning to fall. That is not because the decline of America, rather other countries are beginning to rise as global powers. One of these countries is China. Since the later 1970s, when China opened up its market, its economy has been on a dramatic rise.

Since the United States has no say in the South China Sea they would be neutral. Countries who would be members in the Pacific Nations Committee, but like the United States are outliers in this particular dispute of the South China Sea, would be neutral and therefore would be ideal countries for being brokers in the deal. I believe that this organization I have recommended creating would help deter Chinese aggression in the South China Sea
