China: Forward Edge of Green Modernization

The battle for eco-friendly China will be in focus of the fifth generation of Chinese leaders... While green modernization takes place inside China the government launches a vibrant diplomatic offensive aimed at efficient resolution of global problems related to climate change. This policy has broad support in Europe... The US Republicans begin to get exasperated by China’s successes. It’s not only the desire to attack Democrats on a major issue. The shale revolution that boosts the US economy is too unstable because of ecological problems, something they don’t like to talk about in America. Are they afraid of Greenpeace?

APEC Summit Over: Hobbled Hegemon and Assertive Leader

The dialogue between the US and Chinese leaders was a major event at the recent APEC summit that wound up last week. Before that the US President visited China in 2009. A lot of things related to the bilateral relationship have changed since then - with its global clout grown, China has become increasingly confident and assertive.  The title of the article A Beleaguered Barack Obama Goes to Meet a Confident Xi Jinping at APEC published by US weekly Times mirrors the things almost precisely as they are...

The APEC Circus: Unfree Trade and Growing Insecurity

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation gathering in Beijing has been another excuse to go through the motions of old problems and old requests.  Rivalries are being scratched and aggravated.  The speech writers have been busy attempting to give the leaders some mettle to work with.

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...

Russia Upends Middle East Situation: New Reality, Reviewed Policies

The US puts an end to its training program of Syrian rebel forces and shifts to providing equipment and weapons to existing forces. Its $580m program was beset with a series of embarrassing setbacks and came under harsh criticism after it emerged that the rebels had handed hardware and ammunition over to extremists. “Probably 60 to 80 percent of the arms that America shoveled in have gone to al-Qaida and its affiliates,” said Joshua Landis, a Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma.
