APEC - «Bali Tunes»

The APEC annual summit took place on the island of Bali (Indonesia) in early October.  The APEC encompasses 21 states situated in Asia, Australia, South and North America.  The goal has never changed since the foundation; it is the economic and commercial liberalization in the Asia-Pacific region.  With over 20 summits behind, the rhetoric is forever the same saying economic growth is impossible without fostering export, providing free access to outside markets for transnational corporations as well as relentless fight against protectionism. The longer the global crisis lasts, the less convincing it sounds...

Russia in the Asia-Pacific Region: An Open Project

The APEC summit has ended without US President attending. There is a certain symbolism in this; opinions on how to improve the economic situation in the megaregion and in the world economy as a whole are mainly being exchanged by Asian states, which have demonstrated high growth rates in the new century, despite waves of crisis which periodically roll in from across the ocean...

India and APEC: Center of Mutual Gravitation

The 24th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) annual summit is to take place on September 2-8 in Vladivostok. Today APEC is the largest economic forum for 21 Asia-Pacific nations accounting for 57% of world GNP and 48% of world trade. As is known India has requested membership in the organization. Russia strongly supports the urge of the «world’s largest Democracy» to accede. Moscow rightly believes that adding the dynamic economy of the Elephant to the Dragon (China), an active APEC participant, will open new opportunities for all those who have joined the forum...

Prime State’s Priority

At the beginning of September the traditional meeting of APEC member states leaders will take place on Russian soil, in Vladivostok and the Russky Island. The Far East is not only the land of 6,2 million square kilometers, making up for a third of Russia’s territory, it’s also the area boasting enormous investment potential that is still to be realized. Nature, energy, transport, communications and manufacturing are the areas for attracting money flows. It’s a real treasure land of mineral, raw material and biological resources that have been barely developed. The prospects for this region to great extent depend on changing the balance between the world economic centers...

Tensions Run High in Asia-Pacific Before APEC Summit in Vladivostok (II)

A U.S.-China tug-of-war over Southeast Asian influence is proving to be a critical test for Washington's "pivot" East as Beijing strengthens its economic and military clout in its own backyard. On June 28 a Chinese Defense Ministry statement said that the United States' reinforcement of military deployment in the Asia-Pacific is not conducive to security and mutual trust in the region... the Pacific is the place where 95% of the world’s ballistic missile capabilities are located... Russia, China, India and other states could elaborate new security architecture in the region avoiding European bloc politics and hard-power approach to international politics. The time is now and the place to start is Vladivostok.

Tensions Run High in Asia-Pacific Before APEC Summit in Vladivostok (I)

As Asia becomes more prosperous it spends proportionally more of its new wealth on defense. All regional actors get increasingly concerned about the ability to protect their economic interests to ensure sustainable growth. The disputed island territories are a lucrative asset to struggle for. With all the turmoil going on in the Middle East the Asia - Pacific is far from being calm seas too. This spring the tensions were high between China and the Philippines over the disputed Scarborough islands...

Obama, magic beans and Asia-Pacific

Put simply, the Honolulu interactions of Obama with Corporate America gave the profound sense that China's middle class (300-million string today and ever growing) is the ultimate catch prize in order for America's economy to get out of its hopeless rut. China's domestic market is a veritable gold mine for the US businesses. The Reuter news agency took a poll among the US business executives who were at the Q&A with Obama in Honolulu. As many as forty percent of them said their "single biggest growth opportunity comes from the rise of spending power" in China...

Asia-Pacific: New Theatre of Power Play

The US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s speech at East-West Center in Hawaii, on 10 November 2011, on the eve of the APEC summit serves a prelude to the forthcoming US strategies in the region, which will most likely be received with caution by other countries like India, Russia and China...The contours of the emerging power play in Asia Pacific will be mainly threefold: trade, strategic alliances and clashes over the values governing nation states…

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

Seriously, is that it? US national intelligence presented its «evidence» this week on the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»... So, on one hand, Russia is implicated, while on the other hand «there is no direct link»...  It seems incredible that the US does not have any images of what really happened on that horrific Thursday afternoon. Unless of course, the US is deliberately suppressing that information  to suit a preordained narrative, aimed precisely at trying to implicate Russia over the disaster...
