Win-win relationship for ASEAN and Europe
Javier Solana, Nst.com, 27 July 2007

ASIA matters to the European Union. Europe has a major stake in a stable and prosperous Asia. Our political, security and economic interests are more intertwined than ever. But our relationship goes far beyond the economic and trade realm: The European Union and its Asian partners contribute actively together to resolving regional and global problems.

We also share an important vision in which a system of global governance, with regional structures as its cornerstones, effectively addresses transnational problems.

Ifzal Ali: A tripolar Asia is Emerging (Interview)
Economic Times 19 Jul, 2007

We’re seeing the emergence of a tripolar Asia with India, China and South-East Asia as the three poles. This has three main implications. One, it will strengthen global, regional, and domestic integration and ensure sustained growth. Two, catch-up in developing Asia will require at least a generation with enormous investment and trading opportunities. Three, the world at large will have to wake up to both the opportunities and the challenges posed by the emergence of this new global order.

Economists call for closer Asian financial integration
PARISTA YUTHAMANOP, Bangkokpost.com, 19 July 2007

The 1997 economic crisis taught Asia the importance of closer financial co-ordination to mitigate the impact of a crisis, said a group of leading economists. Masahiro Kawai, dean of the ADB, said closer trade integration in Asia had created a need for stable intra-regional exchange rates.

Smoother trade in East Asia
Editorial, The Japan Times, 16 July 2007

The trade ministry's fiscal 2007 white paper calls for creation of an "open and seamless" economic system in East Asia where Japanese companies have already established strong business networks. Behind the call is recognition that a dynamic East Asian economy is indispensable for Japan's economic growth.

The Asian crisis, ten years after
Joseph E Stiglitz, Economic Times, 16 July, 2007

This July marks the tenth anniversary of East Asia’s financial crisis. In a little more than a year, the Asian financial crisis became a global financial crisis, with the crash of Russia’s rouble and Brazil’s real. In the midst of a crisis, no one knows how far an economy will drop or for how long. But capitalism, since its beginning, has been marked by crises; each time, the economy recovers, but each crisis carries its own lessons. So ten years after Asia’s crisis, it is natural to ask: what were the lessons, and has the world learned them? Could such a crisis recur? Is another crisis imminent?

The India-China equation
Rohit Pandit, Financial Express, 14 July 2007

China’s scorching economic growth continues unabated, and India needs to seize the opportunities that this presents and take concerted action to prevent its competitive advantage from taking a hit in some areas. India must gear up to meet the challenges that China poses, both in domestic and international markets, and at the same time identify the areas where we can take advantage of the large Chinese market.
