After the cold war, two opposing military systems, the U. S. and the Soviet Union, break up with notable changes in international politics and economic order. The international situation becomes more dynamic and it is a trend for nations to solve international or regional disputes through negotiation and cooperation. Ideology is no longer the standard for nations to ally and cooperate with each other. Instead, they turn to put high values on regions and functions. Gradually, the world economy tends to develop with the three centered regions, that is, Europe, North America, and East Asia.
In the 90s, ASEAN attempts to dominate regional affairs and adopts the strategy allied by nations. Through its close union and force, ASEAN has formed a power which cannot be ignored. It is going to have tremendous impact on other economic systems of world.
Since the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in 1978, China begins to open in its economy. Now, with over thousand billion US dollars of GDP and four hundred billion US dollars of external trade volume, it has become the world’s sixth largest trading nation, seeming to replace Japan in East Asia region. It changes politics and economy not only in that region, but also in the world. It leads the growth in regional economy and becomes the center for world economic development.
China’s cooperation with ASEAN not only helps China reach its goal as a large nation in Asia-Pacific region, but also allows it to play a vital role in ASEAN free trade system. China shows positive and aggressive attitude toward ASEAN and expands its power to Southeast Asia. One of the main reasons for its action is, in addition to following trends like globalization and regionalism, concerned with its multilateralism and new security concept. It desires to eliminate “China Threat Theory,” builds up the favorably international environment, then benefits its modernized construction, maintains regional strategy balance, avoids the dispute caused by South China Sea to become more complicated, and finally reaches the goal of integrating regional economy. However, the true purpose of its action is to compete with the U.S., Japan or other large nations to obtain the power to dominate the Asia-Pacific area and to solve Taiwan issue successfully. How is the relationship of economy and trading development between China and ASEAN formed? What are their purposes? What kind of influence would be caused toward both sides, the Asia region, and even Taiwan? These will be discussed detailedly in the study.
