Asian integration still a long way off
Hong Guan, China Daily, 21 April 2007

The European Union celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, but the prospect of a united Asia still seems a long way off. The success of the single European currency set a good example for successful economic integration. However, experts were quick to point out that development-level disparities among Asian economies meant that European-style integration would not be seen in Asia any time soon.

Ten years later, East Asia is back
The Japan Times, 16 April 2007

East Asia's emerging economies have come roaring back since the 1997 financial crisis. They have recouped losses caused by that trauma, but regional governments now face new challenges that require still more creative policies and deeper reform. In fact, the difficulties will intensify as China continues its breakneck growth. There is no room for complacency or congratulations, no matter how much deserved.

Asia is still a star on the economic front
David Burton, NST Online, 14, April 2007

At the World Bank-IMF meetings, Asia is once again the star. The region once again stands out for its economic performance. Emerging Asia’s economic growth rate reached nine per cent last year, led by the remarkable performance of China and India, while inflation remained generally under control.

David Burton, The Jakarta Post, 13 April 2007

As global financial leaders converge on Washington for the 2007 World Bank-IMF Spring meetings this week, the Asia region once again stands out for its economic performance. Emerging Asia's economic growth rate reached 9 percent last year, led by the continued remarkable performance of China and India, while inflation remained generally under control.

Japan needs to push for an Asian Community
Bill Emmott, The Asahi Shimbun, 3 April 2007

Will there ever be anything in Asia like the European Union?

Nehru's Asian Relations conference in March 1947 could never have launched such a union. Asia was then in postwar turmoil, with many countries still in the throes of civil war or yet to achieve independence. The conference also revealed a basic divide between Asia's two giants, India and China, about how Asian collaboration might occur and, most important, who should lead it. And this was even before Mao's Communists took power in China in 1949.

Koya Ozeki, Daily Yomiuri Online, 1 April, 2007

Intraregional cooperation has been gaining ground over the past few years, and the creation of an economic community in this region remains a goal that could be achieved further down the road. To give this drive a shot in the arm, the leaders discussed and debated a broad range of topics in an attempt to sort out issues that East Asian nations should tackle together.
