It is home of some of the world's largest and most prosperous economies : China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea. Major positive factors have ranged from favorable political-legal environments for industry and commerce, through abundant natural resources of various kinds, to plentiful supplies of relatively low-cost, skilled and adaptable labor. In modern societies, a high level of structural differentiation, functional specialization, and autonomy of the economic system from government is a major contributor to industrial-commercial growth and prosperity. Currently in the Far East, trading systems are relatively open; and zero or low duties on imports of consumer and capital goods...

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.

This week, we've reported heavily on the private foreign-affairs group known as the Trilateral Commission, while noting that this group of about 300 government, corporate, banking, academic and media heavyweights will meet in Washington this weekend. 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 trip. 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.

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.

US stations 1,200 special forces in Asia-Pacific. The United States Pacific Command has stationed more than 1,200 special forces troops in the Asia-Pacific along with the latest advancements in weapons technology to contain China's rising presence in the region, reports the Beijing-based Sina Military Network. The article points to comments made by the US defense secretary, Ashton Carter, during his recent 10-day tour of Asia-Pacific countries and attendance at the 14th Asia Security Summit in Singapore, during which he stressed the importance of the Asia Pacific to US interests, insisting that Washington is determined to create an atmosphere of trust, assist in resolving territorial disputes and ensure stability and safety in the region. In late April, shortly before he embarked on the trip, Carter also said at a speech at Stanford University that while the US welcomes China and India's rise, the Pentagon needs to maintain an American presence in the Asia-Pacific "because it's a reassurance to many there" given the role of the US in maintaining peace in the region over the past 70 years. America's most recent national military strategy issued in February made it clear that the US is, has been and always will be a Pacific nation, adding that Washington has maintained diverse relations with various Asian countries while also strengthening its military presence in the Asia Pacific for the sake of ensuring regional security. Indeed, the US has been active in building stronger ties with Japan, South Korea, Australia and the Philippines, and has also been exploring partnerships with Southeast Asian nations such as Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia. It is clear that the main competitor to US control of the region is China, said Sina Military, though Washington is also pursuing stronger ties with Beijing as it is in the interests of both sides. Accordingly, Washington needs to be prepared to resolve obstacles between the two sides through peaceful and diplomatic means, but it also needs to be ready for the possibility of a sudden conflict. The arm of the US armed forces responsible for the Asia Pacific is the United States Pacific Command, whose jurisdiction also includes Alaska and the North Pole, the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. In total, the area of responsibility of the Pacific Command covers 36 counties — five of which have nuclear weapons — and more than 50% of the world's population and surface area.

CONTINUE WATCHING: http://ur1.ca/a090p TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: http://www.corbettreport.com/?p=5427 If the Asia-Pacific region is becoming, in the words of Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton, "the strategic and economic center of gravity," then the South China Sea may just be the strategic center of that strategic center. At first glance, there is nothing particularly remarkable about this area of the Pacific. Stretching from the southern shores of the People's Republic of China and Taiwan in the north to Malaysia and Indonesia in the south, it covers about 3.5 million square kilometers and contains three archipelagos containing over 250 islands, reefs, shoals, atolls and sandbars, most of them containing no indigenous population, and many of them submerged for part or all of the year. Upon closer inspection, however, the waters comprising the South China Sea are of central importance to the region. It is the second busiest sea lane in the world, and contains proven oil reserves of over 7 billion barrels, with an estimated 28 billion barrels total and 266 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. As the sea's importance becomes more and more pronounced, and as the region itself sees its major players asserting themselves more aggressively on the world stage, the area has become a flashpoint for disputes between China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Now, tensions in the area are threatening to spill over into armed confrontation. Find out more in this week's Eyeopener report.

The economy of East Asia is one of the most successful regional economies of the world. It is home of some of the world's largest and most prosperous economies : China, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea. Major positive factors have ranged from favorable political-legal environments for industry and commerce, through abundant natural resources of various kinds, to plentiful supplies of relatively low-cost, skilled and adaptable labor. In modern societies, a high level of structural differentiation, functional specialization, and autonomy of the economic system from government is a major contributor to industrial-commercial growth and prosperity. Currently in the Far East, trading systems are relatively open; and zero or low duties on imports of consumer and capital goods etc. have considerably helped stimulate cost-efficiency and change. Free and flexible labor and other markets are other important factors making for high levels of business-economic performance. East Asian populations have demonstrated rapid learning capabilities – skills in utilizing new technologies and scientific discoveries – and putting them to good use in production. Work ethics in general tend to be highly positive. Finally, there are relatively large and fast-growing markets for consumer goods and services of all kinds. East Asia became an area of economic power starting with the Meiji Restoration in the late 19th century when Japan rapidly transformed itself into the only industrial power outside Europe and the United States. Japan's early industrial economy reached its height in World War II when it expanded its empire and became a major world power. After its defeat and economic collapse after the war, Japan's economy recovered in the 1950s with the post-war economic miracle in which rapid growth in the Japanese economy propelled the country into the world's second largest economy by the 1980s. In the early 1960s, the British colony of Hong Kong became the first of the four Asian Tiger economies by developing strong textile and manufacturing industries and by the 1970s, had solidified itself as a global financial center and was quickly turning into a developed economy.[2] Following in the footsteps of Hong Kong, the nations of South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore soon quickly industrialized thanks to government policies. By 1997, the four Asian Tiger economies joined Japan as East Asia's developed economies. Additionally, the economy of Macau, then a Portuguese colony, was also experiencing rapid growth during this period through textile manufacturing and the development of a gambling industry, which resulted in high levels of foreign investment into the territory.[3] Macau replaced Las Vegas as the world's largest gambling center in 2007.[4] Present growth in East Asia has now shifted to China and the Tiger Cub Economies of the Southeast Asian countries of Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. As of early 2013, Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore are the only East Asian nations that are considered developed markets by all economic indexes. Since the end of the 20th century, Japan's role as the principal economic power in the region has shifted to the Four Asian Tiger economies and more recently, China, which became world's second largest economy in 2010.[5] Furthermore, a 2012 report by The Economist noted that South Korea is expected to overtake Japan in terms of GDP per person at power purchasing parity by 2017, a feat already accomplished by Macau (2010), Taiwan (2010), Hong Kong (1997), and Singapore (1993). Among the major policy choices commonly adopted in East Asia, and noticeably less so elsewhere in the developing world are openness to foreign trade, significant levels of government savings and an emphasis on education for both boys and girls. While these attributes were far from universally applied, they are conspicuously present in the region to a much larger degree than is the case elsewhere. In 2005, East Asia had more than one-third of the world’s population, an estimated 2,075 Billion people. Growth during the decade is expected to 0.79% per annum, pushing the total to 2,154 million by 2010. South-east Asia is expected to grow more than twice as fast (1.32% p.a.) as North-east Asia (0.60% p.a.). 65.5% of the population is working age (15-59), slightly higher than the global average 61.4%. The North-east / South-east divide holds for other demographic indicators, too. The average age in the North-east was 33.1 years in 2005, and 26 years in South-east Asia. Life expectancy (74.1 years vs. 70) is not as distinctly different, although infant mortality rates differ by nearly a third: 21.8 per 1,000 in North-east Asia vs. 28.3 in South-east Asia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_East_Asia Image By Bernard Gagnon (Own work) [GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html) or CC-BY-SA-3.0-2.5-2.0-1.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons
