Both Russia and China are investing more resources in their navies than they have historically. And each nation is forming alliances and making policy to support expansions in their access to waters around the world, and to support future efforts to deny potential adversaries access to those waters. The US Naval Institute and the Center for Strategic and International Studies are presenting the Maritime Security Dialogue to examine the state of leadership, equipment, and policy regarding the US’s efforts at sea. The dialogue includes discussion of the Navy, Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard. Vice Admiral Peter Daly (USN ret.) is Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Naval Institute. Admiral Daly is former Deputy Commander and Chief of Staff of U.S. Fleet Forces Command. On National Defense Week, he discussed the latest edition of the Dialogue, a discussion he moderated this week with VADM Mike Shoemaker, Commander of Naval Air Forces and Commander of the Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.
