(p.305) 11 China’s Economic Approach to ASEAN
China, The United States, and the Future of Southeast Asia

The implementation of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) has deepened regional economic connectivity. Even so, challenges brought about by the potential of TPP, unsustainable trading patterns, and ASEAN misgivings remain concerning the prospect of CAFTA. The author presents two trends: On the one hand is the trend that bilateral economic ties will be further enhanced and, looking ahead, that ASEAN member states will benefit more from CAFTA. On the other hand, distrust and misgivings about China are mounting among Southeast Asian countries, largely due to the unresolved territorial disputes. Hence, the gap between their close economic ties and strategic mistrust will likely grow. Countries in East Asian have to struggle between these conflicting trends.
