Two Asias?

China’s Rise, Dual Structure, and the Alliance System in East Asia

(p.100) Chapter 4 Two Asias?
Strategic Adjustment and the Rise of China

Wang Dong

Cornell University Press

This chapter addresses the impact of the rise of China on the growing U.S.–China regional competition. The rise of the Chinese economy has challenged U.S. market dominance in East Asia. In regional security affairs, China has also achieved noticeable gains vis-à-vis the United States; however, its strategic rise remains in its early stages. This distinction between the region's economic and strategic structure has created a great power dual structure in East Asia comprising an “Economic Asia” and a “Security Asia.” China has improved its economic presence in the region, promoting regionwide cooperation within Chinese-led institutions. In security affairs, it has also developed a more proactive policy, but it simultaneously acknowledges the United States as the region's dominant strategic power.

Keywords:   China, Chinese economy, U.S. market dominance, East Asia, security affairs, Economic Asia, Security Asia
