This chapter explores the role played by natural resources in Central Asia, particularly China's position over the last decade. This offers an opportunity to address questions of impact, influence, and what China's continued engagement means for Russia, the United States, and the region as a whole. China appears to be forging ahead in its efforts to gain an advantage in Central Asia through developing energy partnerships and fostering greater regional integration, the construction of pipelines that directly link Central Asia with China, and substantial loans for oil and gas that ensure long-term Chinese access to energy resources. Indeed, secure and affordable energy is a strategic Chinese national imperative.
