Opinion: China and the new regional order

November 13, 2014

The significance of the recent meeting between China’s President Xi Jinping and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is another indication of China’s dominance in the emerging regional order, according to Professor Mark Beeson from the Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy and International Affairs at Murdoch.

In his article for The Conversation, Professor Beeson argues that everything of significance that has happened of late in the Asia-Pacific has been driven by China or has occurred in response to something China has done.

He also warns that Australia’s Free Trade Agreement with China, which is due to be signed next week, may be a duff deal done for strategic rather than economic reasons.
