Its a signal to the USA that we now have the power to bring the battle to your hemisphere and shore. We are no longer limited to Asian waters.

In 2008, General Qian Lihua confirmed that China plans to operate a small fleet of aircraft carriers in the near future, but for the purpose of regional defence as opposed to "global reach". As of 2013 PLA officials have also outlined plans to operate in the first and second island chains Chinese strategists term the development of the PLAN from a green-water navy into "a regional blue-water defensive and offensive navy."
