when Mr. Modi refused to mention the Rohingya refugee situation during a visit to Nay Pyi Taw. In both cases, India reversed its stand, adding to the sense that it is unsure of its next steps when dealing with neighbours on political issues. 33. Discuss American trade and security interests in South and South East Asian region. The U.S. has trade deficits with all the five countries of China, Japan, South Korea and Vietnam and Philippines. In the case of the Philippines, which has a small surplus with the U.S., the relationship is less about trade, he said, but more for military purposes. America offers these countries technology, capital and access to its market and also offers a security guarantee and a predictable world order based on multilateral trade and security pacts.

The friction between China and its neighbours heightened as Beijing’s ambitions grew after the 2008 financial crisis.

The Indo-Pacific region is now central to global politics and economics and recent days have merely reinforced the trends that have been emerging for some time. China is the most important player in the region, and as Chinese President Xi Jinping made clear in his speech at the recent Communist Party Congress, Beijing is now more confident than ever of projecting regional and global power.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
