The Spratly Islands consist of more than 100 small islands or reefs. They are surrounded by rich fishing grounds and potentially by gas and oil deposits. They are claimed in their entirety by China, Taiwan, and Vietnam, while portions are claimed by Malaysia and the Philippines. About 45 islands are occupied by relatively small numbers of military forces from China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Brunei has established a fishing zone that overlaps a southern reef but has not made any formal claim. (from the CIA)


Economic Overview

Economic activity is limited to commercial fishing. the proximity to nearby oil- and gas-producing sedimentary basins suggests the potential for oil and gas deposits, but the region is largely unexplored. there are no reliable estimates of potential reserves. commercial exploitation has yet to be developed.

Environmental Issues



No indigenous inhabitants note: there are scattered garrisons occupied by personnel of several claimant states


Southeastern asia, group of reefs and islands in the south china sea, about two-thirds of the way from southern vietnam to the southern philippines

International Disputes

All of the spratly islands are claimed by china, taiwan, and vietnam; parts of them are claimed by malaysia and the philippines; in 1984, brunei established an exclusive fishing zone that encompasses louisa reef in the southern spratly islands but has not publicly claimed the reef; claimants in november 2002 signed the "declaration on the conduct of parties in the south china sea," which has eased tensions but falls short of a legally binding "code of conduct"; in march 2005, the national oil companies of china, the philippines, and vietnam signed a joint accord to conduct marine seismic activities in the spratly islands
