While Western nations have begun to feel the sting of this transition, deliberations at the World Economic Forum indicate that the rise of the Asian giants should be seen as an opportunity and not as a threat.

The rich nations, it seems, are already on a path to try and capitalise on the inevitable emergence of what will become the powerhouse of the world's economic activity.

THE fledgling East Asia Summit (EAS), a forum that includes some of the world's established and emerging powers but excludes the United States, is beginning to dream of flying high. The 16 EAS participants - China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and the 10-member ASEAN - are not surely clueless as such. But the challenge before them is how best to carve out a niche role for themselves.

The meeting of 16 national leaders at the second East Asia Summit (EAS) on the Philippine island of Cebu last week offered the promise of the politically fractious but economically powerful Asian mega-region one day coalescing into a single meaningful unit.

Rise of China and India changes course of global economic history
Shanghai Daily, 22 January 2007

There is a fundamental transfer of power that we are witnessing around the world: The rise of some new economic and geopolitical powers at the same time that globalization becomes more widespread.

These trends are challenging societal norms and reshaping relations between states, markets, companies and consumers.

The recently concluded annual round of meetings in Cebu (Philippines) involving India, Asean (Association of South East Asian Nations), East Asian countries (China, Japan, and Korea), Australia and New Zealand provides a convenient occasion to reflect on the progress in India's engagement with the region.
India's current trade with the countries that attended this meeting is around $125 billion, and growing rapidly. The presence of Indian businesses and diaspora in these countries is also increasing. This augurs well for deepening of India's linkages.

Nations required to develop new strategy to embrace U.S.
The Korea Herald, 20 January 2007
Kim Soung-chul, Senior Fellow, Sejong Institute in Seongnam

At the latest and second East Asia Summit this week in the Philippines, leaders of the 16 member countries signed an energy security pact that seeks to reduce oil dependency and greenhouse gas emissions, although it does not offer concrete targets. The East Asia Summit is an expanded forum of "ASEAN+3 (Korea, China and Japan)," a representative organization of Greater East Asia.

Gulf News, 20 January 2007

The Asian story is big and getting bigger. The impact of the largest continent on the world economy in recent years has been enormous, especially in the rise of China as an emerging economic superpower, and lately the excitement generated by the growth of India, with similar promise.

Southeast Asian free trade
The New Nation, 19 January 2007

AT their just concluded summit at the port city of Cebu, the Philippines, the Southeast Asian leaders agreed to turn their region into a free trade zone by 2015 and fight hard for poverty alleviation. The summit host, Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo stressed the need to bolster free trade within the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) that, she said, 'is committed to expanding its trade forum to become the largest in the world'.

Business Standard, January 10, 2007

Prof. Stiglitz broadly makes the following points in this book. First, globalisation has yielded positive results over a long period for many economies. According to him, for East Asia “[g]lobalization—in the form of export-led growth—helped pull the East Asian countries out of poverty. Globalization made this possible, providing access to international markets as well as access to technology that enabled vast increases in productivity. These countries simultaneously achieved growth and stability”.
