第135話 世界ランキング

 フィリピンが世界に誇るもの、これは色々あるかもしれないが、数字を伴わないものは感覚的なものでしかない。数字を伴って客観的に証明できるものとなると、ハタと考えてしまう。海外に出稼ぎに出る労働者の数とかはかなり突出しているだろうが、誇れるものというよりは、自国に十分な産業基盤がないことの証左であり、むしろ恥ずかしいことである。
 たまたま中学生の地理の教科書を見ていたら、排他的経済水域についての記載が目に留まった。日本は国土面積は大したことないが、排他的経済水域の面積は世界6位だそうだ。もっともここには北方領土や竹島周辺海域も含まれているから、実効支配面積ではもう少し小さいだろう。
 さてフィリピン。同様に島国だ。残念なことに飛び離れたところにある島が少ないため(わが国では沖の鳥島や南鳥島が大健闘)、意外と排他的経済水域は面積としては小さいようだ。しかし、あった。容積である。フィリピンで東海上にはフィリピン海溝があって海は深い。面積では大したことはないが、容積になると10位に浮上する。
 さらにもうひとつ。海岸線の長さだ。だから何なんだ、とも言えるデータだが、世界第3位(日本は6位)だそうだ。しかも人口一人当たりの長さでは世界第1位(日本は3位)
やっと見つかった世界第1位。どれほどの価値があるのか、分かりません。
