However, President Obama won't be at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel where the Trilateral Commission will meet Friday thru Sunday. He's too busy on his eight-day Asian trip, for which he departed on Tuesday. He'll dine with the Japanese emperor, tour a giant mosque in Malaysia, speak to U.S. troops in the Philippines—and return some ancient seals to South Korea stolen by U.S. soldiers in the Korean War. However, he won't visit China. But Beijing's increasingly muscular attitude toward its Pacific neighbors will shadow Obama throughout his tr...

Kazianis Editor RealClearDefense Please join the Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security for a discussion on regional perspectives on anti-access/area-denial (A2/AD) in the Asia-Pacific region. Our featured discussants will include Ms. Christel Fonzo-Eberhard, Manager of Monitor 360, to speak from ASEAN's perspective; Ms. Yuki Tatsumi, Senior Associate of the East Asia Program at the Stimson Center, to speak from Japan’s perspective; and Dr. Roger Cliff, Nonresident Senior Fellow, Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at the Atlantic Council, to speak from Taiwan’s perspective. The US continues to express concerns about China’s growing military capabilities and continuing military modernization. In particular, the US cites opacity of intent and investments in capability areas that appear designed to strengthen China’s power and influence in the Asia-Pacific region by making it more difficult for US forces to operate in the area. In fact, these A2/AD capabilities appear to have become the focus of US defense strategy. But, how do countries in the region perceive this situation? Do they view these threat similarly to the US and what is their strategy given that they live within the area covered by A2/AD? Our panelists will discuss the perceptions of a Chinese A2/AD strategy in Japan, Taiwan, and other Southeast Asian countries as well how the implications for regional defense strategy. This Atlantic Council event is part of the Cross-Straits Series of the Brent Scowcroft Center's Asia Security Initiative, which examines strategic and current affairs surrounding cross-straits relations.

All Asia-Pacific countries should work together to promote common prosperity of the region, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday in Ottawa, Canada. Wang made the remarks at a joint news conference with his Canadian counterpart Stephane Dion in response to a query on relations among Asia-Pacific countries. Wang said all sides involved should strive for realizing three goals: First, work together to build Asia-Pacific Free Trade Area; second, create an interconnection system to link both sides of the Pacific; third, build an Asia-Pacific partnership. Wang said disputes and conflicts do exist in the region, but parties involved in any disputes should solve them peacefully through dialogue rather than continuing to hold on to the wornout cold war mentality or by drawing the line according to allies or resort to flexing military muscles at every turn. In response to the query about China's response to the foreign policy of the Philippines' new government, Wang said that the door to dialog between China and the Philippines has always been open. China expresses welcome if the Philippines is really willing to return to the orbit of dialog and consultations. "It is conducive to breaking the years of stalemate in the China-Philippines relations for the two countries to properly handle their disputes through direct dialog and consultation. It is also favorable for China and the ASEAN to implement well the Declaration on the Code of Conduct on the South China Sea and favorable for safeguarding peace and stability of the South China Sea. We are pleased to see that the new Philippines government has made the wise choice," said Wang.

Yet here's something that won't make the nightly news: While the secretive Trilateral Commission makes economic and political "recommendations" that the U.S. government is expected to follow, the president appears to implementing the core Trilateral agenda—even before that group meets in Washington. Moreover, the Philippines, Japan and South Korea all want U.S. protection from China, due to its growing influence and ambition. In one of several maritime disputes, Japan and China are competing for ownership of the tiny Senkaku islands. The islands are administered by Japan. One goal strongly favored by the Trilateral group is a "rebalancing" of U.S. power toward East Asia. That means more U.S. military involvement, along with deeper economic ties that give the West more control over the region. Obama indeed seems to following the Trilateral group's prescribed path. But if the U.S. promises a long-term, increased military presence in the region, then it risks taking on additional commitments that will lead to even more foreign entanglements. That is the very thing that founders like George Washington counseled that the U.S. should avoid. And, sure enough, the main Trilateral Commission goal—the completion of the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade deal—is being sought, behind the clutter of other issues. USA Today did note: "The United States seeks progress on the long-delayed Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, but security concerns are likely to dominate amid China's demands that it owns the entire South China Sea . . ." As we've reported, in the week leading up to the Commission's Washington meeting, Trilateral Commissioner Tom Donilon penned a revealing Washington Post column. In it, he strongly backed both the Asia "rebalancing" and the Trans-Pacific trade deal. These Trilateral Commission goals are discussed largely off the public record—but our public officials are expected to pursue those goals. Notably, the 11-nation Trans-Pacific pact will have 12 nations once Japan joins, as is expected. However, the Trans-Pacific scheme does not include China. This has prompted China to feel like it's surrounded by a Western military and economic crusade. Meanwhile, Japan wants America's protection from the rise of China. But the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative noted what appears to be the real goal of Obama's trip. Regarding the Trans-Pacific trade pact, known as the TPP, the Trade Office noted: "With Japan's entry, TPP countries would account for nearly 40 percent of global GDP and about one-third of all world trade. TPP Ministers noted that Japan's participation in the negotiation will underscore the economic significance of TPP and its promise as a pathway toward a Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific." That colossal Free Trade Area may be another major leap forward for the ruthless forces of globalization—en route to a one-world monopoly of high-finance for the privileged few.

What 3 US Supercarriers in the Asia-Pacific Means for N. Korea With three U.S. Nimitz-class supercarriers in the U.S. 7th Fleet’s area of operations (AOO), the United States Navy is underlining its presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific unambiguously. The USS Nimitz, USS Ronald Reagan, and USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike groups are in the 7th fleet’s AOO, which ranges from the international date line to the western Indian Ocean—a large swathe of the earth’s oceans. This kind of convergence of three supercarriers in rare, but not entirely unprecedented. When USS Nimitz crossed into the 7th Fleet’s AOO from the 5th Fleet’s AOO earlier this month, observers suggested that the rare convergence of three carrier strike groups in the region would send a strong message to North Korea, which has launched twenty ballistic missiles to date in 2017 and tested one presumably thermonuclear device. The convergence also comes just days before U.S. President Donald J. Trump will depart to East and Southeast Asia on his first trip to the region. Read more: https://goo.gl/LNeZbj

Military and political leaders from Asia-Pacific countries are gathering in Singapore for the Shangri-La Dialogue, which covers important security issues in the region.   US Secretary of Defense James Mattis spent half of his 30-minute speech discussing China. He warned against countries "militarizing artificial islands and enforcing excessive maritime claims unsupported by international law."   To discuss issues related to the Shangri-La Dialogue and challenges faced in the Asia-Pacific area, CGTN’s talk show Dialogue spoke exclusively with Senior Colonel Zhou Bo, director of the Center for International Security Cooperation from China's Ministry of National Defense.

The Asia-Pacific Power Balance: Perspectives from the U.S., Japan & China http://www.japansociety.org/event/the-asia-pacific-power-balance-perspectives-from-the-us-japan-and-china The Asia-Pacific is an area of critical interest for the peace and stability of the 21st century. The U.S., China and Japan are the three largest economies in the world, and the region is experiencing a vast change in its power balance as China rises and looks for opportunities to assert itself. While there is deep suspicion about the nature of the U.S.-Japan alliance in China, and in the U.S. and Japan about China’s intentions, there are many areas of common concern and potential cooperation, including the challenge of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Join our experts as they discuss the opportunities and challenges in the changing balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region.

Wide of APEC symposium 8. SOUNDBITE (English) George Yeo, Singaporean Foreign Minister "What we really want is a free trade area of the Asia Pacific, but that will be very difficult to negotiate. But let's keep pushing in that direction through bilateral and regional free trade agreements, creating a positive, competitive dynamic." 9. Wide of symposium STORYLINE Singapore called on Tuesday for the creation of an ambitious Asia-Pacific free trade area comprising about half of global trade, as it warned nations that any backsliding on trade liberalisation would be disastrous. The call by Singapore Foreign Minister George Yeo came ahead of a summit of the 21-member Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum that is expected to discuss free-trade proposals. Among those attending the November 14-15 leaders' summit are US President Barack Obama, Chinese President Hu Jintao and Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, who lead the three biggest economies in the world. Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, addressing a panel discussion to mark APEC's 20th anniversary this year said the summit "takes place at a pivotal moment, when the world economy is emerging from the global financial crisis, when the situation has stabilised yet the economic outlook remains uncertain, when much still needs to be done to sustain the economic recovery." Yeo meanwhile told the panel "what we really want is a fr4ee trade area of the Asia Pacific" but acknowledged it would be "very difficult to negotiate." "But let's keep pushing in that direction through bilateral and regional free trade agreements, creating a positive, competitive dynamic," he said. Yeo noted that the seeds for the Asia-Pacific free trade area were sown by the creation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership among Singapore, Chile, New Zealand and Brunei. Such a deal is still many years away - APEC itself has failed to achieve its goal, announced in Bogor, Indonesia, in 1993, to achieve free trade and investment by 2010 among developed countries. APEC's goals and decisions are non-binding on members, but despite its shortcomings, it seems to have contributed greatly toward free trade in the region. Between 1989 and 2007, APEC's total exports increased by an annualised average growth rate of 9.5 percent compared to the world average of 8.9 percent. The average tariff rates in APEC fell from 17 percent to 5 percent now. Statistics show that the share of exports and imports within the APEC region is marginally larger than comparable estimates for the European Union - and much greater than those of the North American Free Trade Area or Southeast Asian trade area.

China called for Asia-Pacific nations to improve their coordination and communication on macro-economic policy on Wednesday. Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli urged a more integrated regional approach during his keynote speech at a meeting of finance ministers from Asia-Pacific nations. He warned that the regional economy was facing "serious challenges." "We need to improve the coordination and dialogues on macro-economy policies, share policy information and conduct prompt and effective communications with the market so as to reduce the negative spillover effect out of policy adjustments," said Zhang. Asia-Pacific finance ministers are meeting in Beijing amid concerns over a slowdown in the regional economy highlighted by lower Chinese growth figures. Opening the meeting of 21 ministers from Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation economies, Zhang Gaoli said recovery from the global economic downturn had been tepid. But he said China was on track to meet its loose goal of 7.5 percent growth for the year, with inflation stable and the economy set to produce more than 10 (m) million new jobs. "We have full confidence in the Chinese economy," said Zhang, who ranks seventh in the ruling Communist Party's hierarchy. The meeting comes a day after China, the world's No. 2 economy, announced that economic growth had dwindled to a five-year low of 7.3 percent in the last quarter, raising concerns of spill-over effects on the global economy.
