Uncertainty remains as regional ties form
Lim Hua Sing, Professor, Waseda University, Asahi.com, May 25 2007

Asia, as a dynamic region, has attracted the world's attention again. Simultaneously, over the last few years, through the signing of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) among Asian countries, economic cooperation and integration have been further promoted and stimulated within the region.

A Galloping India and China
Ranabir Ray Choudhury, Business Line, 21 May 2007

A recent survey of the intentions of international investors in the years ahead indicates that India and China will be far outpacing their other two compatriot-economies in the so-called BRIC grouping — Brazil and Russia.

Asia`s own IMF
Business Standard, May 07, 2007

The decision by Japan, China and South Korea to partially pool their foreign exchange resources, with a view to preventing a repetition of the Asian financial crisis of 1997, marks the first major regional economic initiative in decades. The move is significant precisely because there is no immediate prospect of such a crisis being repeated; indeed, most of the major Asian economies have learnt the lessons of 1997 and have accumulated foreign exchange as an act of insurance.

Asia Threatened by Global Financial Imbalances, Contemplates Integrated Future
Huliq.com, 4 May 2007

Asia's economic development is a success story that has been decades in the making. But in the past decade, the region has become a key factor in a global imbalance marked by too much reliance on exports by countries in one part of the world and excessive consumption by countries in another part, such as the United States. As senior officials from the Asian Development Bank gather in Kyoto, Japan, some say the way to end this imbalance is through regional economic integration.
