(20 Feb 1998) English/Nat The United States has pledged its commitment to continued economic reform in Southeast Asia by announcing a new plan to encourage U-S businesses to invest there. U-S Secretary of Commerce William Daley introduced the "American Commercial Strategy Initiative" in Singapore on Friday, at the end of a fact-finding tour of the region. Daley warned Asian nations not to use the current financial turmoil in the region as an excuse to close their doors to foreign business and halt reforms. William Daley has been wrapping up his fact-finding tour through Asia. The U-S Commerce Secretary introduced a new business initiative in a speech to the American Chamber of Commerce in Singapore. The "American Commercial Strategy Initiative" is intended to direct the attention of the U-S government towards business opportunities in the region. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Our Ambassadors and our senior commercial officers in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) have developed a commercial strategy initiative. It is intended to energise U-S government attention toward business opportunities in this entire region during this time of significant economic change. We will identify and help U-S businesses to take advantage of new export and investment opportunities despite current economic conditions, because we believe this market's long term potential is enormous." SUPER CAPTION: William Daley, U-S Secretary of Commerce Daley urged Japanese leaders to deregulate the economy to further open their market to products from Asia and the U-S, and to take a lead in promoting trade liberalisation. He said Japan had a key role in Asia's economic recovery and warned other countries against using the crisis as an excuse to raise new trade barriers. The U-S Commerce Secretary said economic reforms were essential for a recovery. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Economies must reform or recovery is impossible. Governments in the region must avoid the mentality of retrenchment, the temptation to stall further liberalisation or the retreat into further protectionism. This is to some degree understandable, but it is a fatal procedure if it is followed." SUPER CAPTION: William Daley, U-S Secretary of Commerce Daley used the U-S economy as an example of how open markets and foreign investment can lead to growth. In his speech, Daley also addressed the current situation in Indonesia. Earlier this week, Indonesian President Suharto sacked the governor of Bank Indonesia over his opposition to plans for a currency board fixing the value of the rupiah to the U-S dollar. America is trying to persuade the Indonesian government to postpone a decision on the proposal. And the International Monetary Fund (I-M-F) has said a (b) billion dollar rescue package it has offered to Indonesia could be in jeopardy if the plan is implemented. Daley said on Friday the U-S was trying to resolve the situation by talking to the Indonesian authorities. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are fully engaged with the government of Indonesia. Some people believe we're butting heads. I think the Ambassador knows that's not the case. We have strong feelings, but we're trying to do this in the context of partnership, friendship in a very difficult, not easy situation." SUPER CAPTION: William Daley, U-S Secretary of Commerce Daley also responded to claims that I-M-F intervention into the Asian crisis did not seem to be leading to a solution. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The fact is, the I-M-F is not going to solve the problem. The problems are going to be solved by the Asian countries, and the people in the countries. The I-M-F was an emergency vehicle to come in and give assistance, but it's not. No one can depend on an institution like that for their long term survival."

The concept of cutting a canal through the Kra Peninsula in southern Thailand has been a conception in the minds of visionary thinkers for hundreds of years. In the early 1980s, it nearly came to fruition, as associates of Lyndon LaRouche, including especially Pakdee Tanapura of Thailand, mobilized leaders of the Thai government, American scientific institutions, Japan’s Mitsubishi Global Infrastructure Fund (GIF), and leaders from every major country in the region (except Singapore and China) to two conferences in Bangkok dedicated to implementing this great project to unite the Pacific and Indian Ocean Basins via a canal. But the British Empire has repeatedly, throughout history, acted to stop the building of the Kra Canal – both because they wanted to maintain the strategic choke point over Asian trade which they enjoyed through their colonial outpost in Singapore and the Malacca Strait, but primarily because such a project would facilitate cooperation among the Asian nations for mutual development and resistance to western imperial dictates– a result to be feared and undermined by the Empire. Financial and political crises in the 1990s, caused by British financial interests and their lackeys such as George Soros, prevented the implementation of the Kra Canal project during the final decades of the 20th Century and early 21st Century. But now the world is experiencing a global revolutionary transformation, and the British Empire, including its puppet Bush and Obama regimes in Washington, is facing dissolution. A new paradigm has emerged, centered in China, bringing Russia, India, Southeast Asia, and potentially the entire world into its development orientation, the “win-win” perspective of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s New Silk Road perspective, known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). In South and Southeast Asia, China’s “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” concept (map), introduced by President Xi in 2013 while speaking to the Indonesian Parliament, has already brought the nations along the South China Sea, the Malacca Strait, the Andaman Sea, the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea, and through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean, into an entirely new economic and political geometry based on rapid infrastructure development. But missing in this geometry has been the hub represented by the potential of the Kra Canal. Now that potential is very close to realization, as the entire Asian region is breaking away from British/American constraints, and acting in its own interests to facilitate win-win development for all parties. At the same time, leading political forces in Thailand are now in a position to launch the project. _________________________________________________________ Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://lpac.co/youtube Get active, become an organizer: http://lpac.co/action Receive daily email updates from LaRouchePAC: http://lpac.co/daily Donate to LaRouchePAC: http://lpac.co/donate-yt Keep connected at: https://larouchepac.com/ https://www.facebook.com/LaRouchePAC https://soundcloud.com/larouche-pac https://twitter.com/larouchepac

What is DEVELOPMENTAL STATE? What does DEVELOPMENTAL STATE mean? DEVELOPMENTAL STATE meaning - DEVELOPMENTAL STATE definition - DEVELOPMENTAL STATE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Developmental state, or hard state, is a term used by international political economy scholars to refer to the phenomenon of state-led macroeconomic planning in East Asia in the late twentieth century. In this model of capitalism (sometimes referred to as state development capitalism), the state has more independent, or autonomous, political power, as well as more control over the economy. A developmental state is characterized by having strong state intervention, as well as extensive regulation and planning. The term has subsequently been used to describe countries outside East Asia which satisfy the criteria of a developmental state. Botswana, for example, has warranted the label since the early 1970s. The developmental state is sometimes contrasted with a predatory state or weak state. The first person to seriously conceptualize the developmental state was Chalmers Johnson. Johnson defined the developmental state as a state that is focused on economic development and takes necessary policy measures to accomplish that objective. He argued that Japan's economic development had much to do with far-sighted intervention by bureaucrats, particularly those in the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). He wrote in his book MITI and the Japanese Miracle: In states that were late to industrialize, the state itself led the industrialization drive, that is, it took on developmental functions. These two differing orientations toward private economic activities, the regulatory orientation and the developmental orientation, produced two different kinds of business-government relationships. The United States is a good example of a state in which the regulatory orientation predominates, whereas Japan is a good example of a state in which the developmental orientation predominates. A regulatory state governs the economy mainly through regulatory agencies that are empowered to enforce a variety of standards of behavior to protect the public against market failures of various sorts, including monopolistic pricing, predation, and other abuses of market power, and by providing collective goods (such as national defense or public education) that otherwise would be undersupplied by the market. In contrast, a developmental state intervenes more directly in the economy through a variety of means to promote the growth of new industries and to reduce the dislocations caused by shifts in investment and profits from old to new industries. In other words, developmental states can pursue industrial policies, while regulatory states generally can not. Governments in developmental states invest and mobilize the majority of capital into the most promising industrial sector that will have maximum spillover effect for the society. Cooperation between state and major industries is crucial for maintaining stable macroeconomy. According to Alice Amsden's Getting the Price Wrong, the intervention of state in the market system such as grant of subsidy to improve competitiveness of firm, control of exchange rate, wage level and manipulation of inflation to lowered production cost for industries caused economic growth, that is mostly found in late industrializers countries but foreign to early developed countries. As in the case of Japan, there is little government ownership of industry, but the private sector is rigidly guided and restricted by bureaucratic government elites. These bureaucratic government elites are not elected officials and are thus less subject to influence by either the corporate-class or working-class through the political process. The argument from this perspective is that a government ministry can have the freedom to plan the economy and look to long-term national interests without having their economic policies disrupted by either corporate-class or working-class short-term or narrow interests.

An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport SINGAPORE - In recent years, the government in Beijing has taken an offensive attitude in regard to the territorial claims in Asia. China has disputes in the south, east and west of the country. The pursuit of these geopolitical objectives has come at the expense of its neighbours. However, we cannot pass everything off as Chinese expansionism since every dispute is unique in its origin. And, what may appear as aggressive posture by China, can be rationally explained by examining the country’s early-modern history that shaped the national mindset.

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The World Economic Forum is an independent organization. Its job is to help businesses, governments and civil society groups find ways to work together to improve the world. The twenty-first World Economic Forum on East Asia recently took place in Thailand. Organizers wanted to bring attention to development in Southeast Asia. The event received extra attention because of the presence of Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese opposition leader and a newly elected member of parliament. She traveled to Bangkok in her first foreign trip in over twenty years. Burmese President Thein Sein cancelled his appearance at the meeting shortly after her travel plans were announced. Klaus Schwab started what came to be called the World Economic Forum and serves as its executive chairman. In opening comments, he praised the growing influence of Southeast Asian nations in the world economy and in political issues. In his words, "When you look at the ASEAN region, you feel that here you have a region which is full of dynamism." He said the region "becomes more and more a crucial factor in the world economic and world political context." Several government leaders were in Bangkok for the meeting. They included the president of Indonesia, the prime minister of Vietnam and the prime minister of Thailand. The forum is a place to discuss issues affecting the ten members of ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. In a speech, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra noted threats like the debt crisis in Europe and climate change. But she also pointed to technological progress, democratic reforms and new centers of economic growth as signs of hope. ASEAN nations are becoming increasingly important in the world economy. As a group, their economic activity is nearing two trillion dollars. Southeast Asian economies are expected to grow more than five percent this year. That rate is higher than Europe or North America.World Trade Organization Director-General Pascal Lamy also attended the meetings. He said Southeast Asia is doing better than other areas now, but he warned that a slowing world economy could create problems. He said he would expect the region to be more affected in the two or three years to come than it has been so far. For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Armed groups are being blamed for an increase in piracy activities on the southern Philippine border and the government in Manila is being urged to curb lawlessness.

Manila 2030 SUBSCRIBE http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=theilocanotube Twitter: https://twitter.com/ilocanotube Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/IlocanoTube/155413501207169 As one of the world's most densely populated capitals, Manila struggles with insufficient transport infrastructure. This can slow down economic growth and hinder economic potential. A large-scale transport plan for Manila Bay will help solve the problem by interconnecting air- and seaport facilities. With a GDP growth of 7% per year, the Philippines is among the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia. Yet much of the Philippines' economic and social potential remains untapped, and the country could play a much stronger role in the global village. Experts and politicians agree that a clogged infrastructure is at the root of the problem. "People lose precious hours when travelling to Manila, so the city gets bypassed the next time they plan a conference or consider new investments or a new company location," explains Frantz Buch Knudsen, project director at Ramboll and a driving force behind a new large-scale transport plan for Manila, Gateway Asia 2030, a project encompassing overall infrastructure, an airport and a seaport. Video: See how a large-scale transport plan for Manila Bay will help making the Philippines an economic epicenter of Southeast Asia. The infrastructure also plays an important role when it comes to rebuilding cities after natural disasters such as the typhoon Haiyan, which devastated parts of the country in November 2013. Every year, storms are damaging Philippian cities, and an economic rise based on a wellfunctioning transport system can contribute to better protection and a strengthening of affected areas. Today, Manila International Airport ranks among the world's least attractive. It handles over seven million more passengers a year than originally intended and cannot meet future requirements for capacity expansion. At the same time access to and from the airport is extremely time-consuming; driving just a few kilometres can take several tortuous hours. The roads are simply not geared for a population of 12 million people living in an area covering just 638 km2. Vision: Economic epicenter of Southeast Asia The Philippine government's vision is clear: In the coming decades the Philippines should become an economic epicentre of Southeast Asia. To reach this goal, Manila needs a much better infrastructure. A multidisciplinary team of experts from Ramboll's Aviation team, Port Department and Transportation Planning and Urban Development Department have already conducted the feasibility studies: "Manila is so densely populated that expanding its ports or airports is impossible. The solution is to build new facilities on reclaimed land in Manila Bay, and with the airport and seaport connected with Manila Metro, the city centre will be a mere 20-minute ride away," explains Søren Brøndum, Senior Director, Transport, Ramboll, continuing: "The transport plan relates to every important aspect of city life, and the challenge is perfect for Ramboll, because our multidimensional transport and planning expertise can be fully exploited and provide a total solution for all modes of transport and urban planning." From 35 to 70 million passengers in less than ten years The aim is to develop a new airport that can compete with the leading Asian hubs. According to plans, the airport will be able to handle up to 70 million passengers in 2022 -- double the capacity of the existing airport. In 2032 its capacity will reach 90 million. The planned seaport will be located next to the airport and supplement Manila's existing ports. The port masterplan also leaves room to further develop the seaport with container and liquid bulk transhipment activities, and the plan aims to accommodate the very large vessels expected in future. Urban development in the "old" airport Between the airport and seaport a third island will be developed for logistic and commercial facilities to be integrated with the other two islands' traffic infrastructure and with existing production areas south of Manila. Finally, the relocation of the airport in Manila Bay will make the vast area where the current airport is located available for urban development. Ramboll has presented an initial spatial plan for developing this land, including commercial, residential, recreational and logistic areas. Thus, the idea of relocating the airport involves not only improving and enlarging the city's airport facilities, but also freeing up some muchneeded land in central Manila.

Jaffa is a southern, oldest part of Tel Aviv-Jaffa municipality (since 1950), an ancient port city in Israel. Jaffa is famous for its association with the biblical stories of Solomon, Jonah and Peter. Jaffa is mentioned four times in the Hebrew Bible, as one of the cities given to the Hebrew Tribe of Dan (Book of Joshua 19:46), as port-of-entry for the cedars of Lebanon for Solomon's Temple (2 Chronicles 2:16), as the place whence the prophet Jonah embarked for Tarshish (Book of Jonah 1:3) and as port-of-entry for the cedars of Lebanon for the Second Temple of Jerusalem (Book of Ezra 3:7). Jaffa is mentioned in the Book of Joshua as the territorial border of the Tribe of Dan, hence the modern term "Gush Dan" for the center of the coastal plain. Many descendants of Dan lived along the coast and earned their living from shipmaking and sailing. In the "Song of Deborah" the prophetess asks: "דן למה יגור אוניות": "Why doth Dan dwell in ships?". After Canaanite and Philistine dominion, King David and his son King Solomon conquered Jaffa and used its port to bring the cedars used in the construction of the First Temple from Tyre. The city remained in Jewish hands even after the split of the Kingdom of Israel. In 701 BCE, in the days of King Hezekiah (חזקיהו), Sennacherib, king of Assyria, invaded the region from Jaffa. After a period of Babylonian occupation, under Persian rule, Jaffa was governed by Phoenicians from Tyre. Alexander the Great's troops were stationed there. It later became a Seleucid Hellenized port until it was taken over by the Maccabean rebels (1 Maccabees x.76, xiv.5) and the refounded Jewish kingdom. During the Roman repression of the Jewish Revolt, Jaffa was captured and burned by Cestius Gallus. The Roman Jewish historian Josephus (Jewish War 2.507--509, 3:414--426) writes that 8,400 inhabitants were massacred. Pirates operating from the rebuilt port incurred the wrath of Vespasian, who razed the city and erected a citadel in its place, installing a Roman garrison there. The New Testament account of St. Peter's resurrection of the widow Tabitha (Dorcas, Gr.) written in Acts 9:36--42 takes place in Jaffa. Acts 10:10--23 relates that while Peter was in Jaffa, he had a vision of a large sheet filled with "clean" and "unclean" animals being lowered from heaven, together with a message from the Holy Spirit to accompany several messengers to Cornelius in Caesaria. The boundaries of Tel Aviv and Jaffa became a matter of contention between the Tel Aviv municipality and the Israeli government during 1948. The former wished to incorporate only the northern Jewish suburbs of Jaffa, while the latter wanted a more complete unification. The issue also had international sensitivity, since the main part of Jaffa was in the Arab portion of the United Nations Partition Plan, whereas Tel Aviv was not, and no armistice greements had yet been signed. On 10 December 1948, the government announced the annexation to Tel Aviv of Jaffa's Jewish suburbs, the Arab neighborhood of Abu Kabir, the Arab village of Salama and some of its agricultural land, and the Jewish 'Hatikva' slum. On 25 February 1949, the abandoned Arab village of Sheikh Muanis was also annexed to Tel Aviv. On 18 May 1949, the Arab neighborhood of Manshiya and part of Jaffa's central zone were added, for the first time including land that had been in the Arab portion of the UN partition plan. The government decided on a permanent unification of Tel Aviv and Jaffa on 4 October 1949, but the actual unification was delayed until 24 April 1950 due to concerted opposition from Tel Aviv's mayor Israel Rokach. The name of the unified city was Tel Aviv until 19 August 1950, when it was renamed as Tel Aviv-Yafo in order to preserve the historical name Jaffa. The Clock Square with its distinctive clocktower was built in 1906 in honor of Sultan Abdul Hamid II. The Saraya (governor's palace) was built in the 1890s. Andromeda rock is the rock to which beautiful Andromeda was chained in Greek mythology. The Zodiac alleys are a maze of restored alleys leading to the harbor. Jaffa Hill is a center for archaeological finds, including restored Egyptian gates, about 3,500 years old. Jaffa Lighthouse is an inactive lighthouse located in the old port.

As part of this policy, it is our mission to upgrade the infrastructure in road, rail, telecom, power and waterways in the region," he told the gathering. "I consider the North Eastern Region as the gateway to South-East Asia.... A lot is being done. Much more still needs to be done," said Modi who earlier in the day chaired a meeting of North Eastern Council (NEC), comprising all states of the region. He said since formation of NDA government at the Centre, more than Rs 10,000 have been spent for development of railway network in North East and the Railway ministry plans to spend more than Rs 5,000 during the current year.

For over a decade, Chinese political and corporate leaders have been hunting for investment opportunities around the globe with bottomless wallets. From Asia, to Africa, the U.S and Latin America, China has asserted itself as an emerging world power. The multi-billion dollar belt and road initiative which some have called as the "Chinese Marshall Plan," is designed to encourage economic connectivity and integration to the Eurasia strategic landscape, by linking Europe and Asia by land. Europe is a key piece in China's grand ambitions and China has been significantly expanding its economic footprint in Europe. So much so that it has led the EU to devise a counter-strategy in order to prevent the creation of political and financial dependencies. I'm Kasim, welcome to KJ Vids and in this video we take a look at China's investments in Europe.

China's $1 trillion One Belt One Road (New Silk Road) initiative is unprecedented in size and scope. President Xi Jinping has sealed megaproject deals with 65 countries to construct ports, power stations, rail lines, roads, and all the tunnels and bridges needed to connect them back to mainland China.

Script: Having recently completed both the world’s most extensive system of expressways and the planet’s longest high speed rail network, China is now looking beyond its borders for opportunities to keep building. President Xi Jinping announced at a recent summit that Beijing has sealed megaproject deals with 65 countries throughout Eurasia and Africa to construct ports, power stations, rail lines, roads, and all the tunnels and bridges needed to connect them back to mainland China. At a total cost of over $1 trillion, the One Belt, One Road initiative is unprecedented in size and scope. So is the bold funding mechanism: China will use its large, state-run banks to provide most of the financing, a risky move, when you consider how few of the nations in the O.B.O.R. could afford something like this on their own. “Oh,” say the leaders of economically-challenged, underdeveloped Laos, Yemen, or Ethiopia — or the blood-soaked regime of Bashar al-Assad in war-ravaged Syria — “you want to loan us billions of dollars to build some cool stuff in our countries? Of course, why not!?” China is hard-selling the project as a way to boost its westward connections, an update of the silk road trade route that played a significant role in developing China and the rest of the region 1,000 years ago. But many analysts see this comparison as little more than a marketing pitch. Al Jazeera clip: “Is the real point of this, East-West service then simply to boost China’s westward connections? [Pauline Loong] “Well I wouldn’t say simply to boost China’s westward connections, but I totally agree with Charles that it’s more a PR stunt. To call it the “Silk Road,” that’s really brilliant—evocative of romantic camel travels in the past. When, you know, you have these lovely silks and trade and so forth. And it’s good, because look at all the headlines it has been getting, but in practical terms, it’s early days yet.” [Bryce] Aside from the lessons China learned from its own recent infrastructure boom, Beijing is also drawing inspiration from the American Marshall Plan which financed the rebuilding of Western Europe after it was decimated during the second world war. That program was worth the equivalent of $130 billion in today’s dollars and ensured the US had reliable export markets for the manufactured goods and machinery its growing economy had become dependent on producing. China’s modern version — first announced in 2013 — is the signature initiative of President Xi Jinping. Several projects have already been completed. Earlier this year London became the 15th European city connected directly to China through an ever-expanding global rail system, meaning freight trains loaded with goods can now arrive after a 12,000km journey all the way from the east coast of the landmass. And, at a cost of $4 billion, China also just completed Africa’s first transnational electric railway, which runs 466 miles from Djibouti to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Chinese companies designed the system, built the line, and supplied the train cars...

Together with other Vietnamese people not only in the motherland but also from all around the world - from Russia, German to Japan, The Vietnamese Community in the Czech Republic, were protesting against the Chinese Governments actions with their drilling rig in the South East Asia Sea. This action clearly violated the United Nations conventions on Law of the Sea signed in 1982. The Chinese Government allowed their own drilling rig to operate in the Exclusive Economic zone of Vietnam. Approximately, there were about 2000 Vietnamese people attended this event.

http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_Index.asp Subscribe:http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=arirangnews The government will finalize plans to redraw Korea's Air Defense Identification Zone by the end of this week. An unnamed senior defense ministry official said Tuesday that Korea's top security advisers will meet later this week to confirm the details of the new zone. Once an agreement is reached, he said neighboring countries will be notified of the plan before a formal announcement is made. The move follows Beijing's announcement of its air defense zone last month, which has escalated military tensions in Northeast Asia. The Chinese zone overlaps with one set by Japan, and covers disputed islands that are controlled by Japan. It also partly overlaps with Korea's air defense zone and the aerial space above Ieodo, a submerged rocky mass lying in exclusive economic zones in the East China Sea held by the two countries. Korea is now considering expanding its air defense zone further south to cover Ieodo. Seoul's upcoming announcement is expected to further raise tensions with neighboring nations. And with Washington already promising Tokyo full support in countering Beijing's latest declaration, Seoul's decision may test the Korea-U.S. alliance. China's air defense zone will be one of the key issues addressed by American Vice President Joe Biden during his East Asia tour this week. The White House said that Biden will express U.S. concerns to officials in Beijing, while also conferring with its allies in Korea and Japan. Hwang Sung-hee, Arirang News.

How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare. And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders. And that’s exactly what's happening in the Middle East.

His Majesty Rajah Mohammad Ghamar Mamay Hasan Abdurajak and Queen Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdurajak Zamboanga City, [02.15.15] – The Royal Imperial Lupah Sūg Islamic United Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo is set to form soon a transitory parallel government soon to implement its Peace, Economic and Defense programs to serve the people and unite the Tribals, Muslims and Christians in Mindanao, Rajah Mohamad Ghamar Mamay Hasan Abdurajak, told The Sorsogon Examiner. The envisioned parallel government will be transitory in nature that will lay the foundations of a Monarchial government patterned before England, His Majesty Rajah Mohammad Ghamar Mamay Hasan Abdurajak said. The plan is under the Royal Decree 104 issued by the Royal Couple this week based from Predecessor of Law 101 and by a virtue of the vested authority given to them by His Excellency, His Royal Highness Ricky Nathaniel of the Royal International Court of Justice. A statute governing the Law of Succession from the Predecessor of Law 101, a law followed and applied to legitimize the Royal succession and to earn its titles of Nobility of the Lineage direct from Sharifful Hashim Sultan Saidana Abubakar, the last Monarch of South East Asia. His Majesty Rajah Mohammad Ghamar Mamay Hasan Abdurajak and Queen Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdurajak were granted power by HRH Ricky Nathaniel to Rajah Abdurajak as the Sovereign Judge of Sulu and North Borneo, while Her Majesty Queen Helen, as the Queen of Philippine Islands. Royal Decree allowing to create parallel government is recognized and vouched by the Royal International Court of Justice [ICJ] headed by His Excellency His Royal Highness Ricky Nathaniel as the newly restored Kingdom of the East. In the same vein, the reason in restoring back the lost Kingdom of The Royal Imperial Lupah Sūg Islamic United Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo is the failure of the leaders of the caretaker Philippine government to honor the expirations of MAPHILINDO Agreements and Carpenter Agreements. With this failures, despite of the agreed moratorium as agreed by previous authorities, the ICJ and the armistice of the Navta Votjala Celestial Empire Sovereign Royal Imperial Parabolic Vestibular Treasury Ordinance Military High Command grants the necessary authority to the Royal Imperial Lupah Sūg Islamic United Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo to recall its original sovereignty that was granted during the time of Queen Victoria as recorded in the Treasury Department and books of the Bank of England and its Royal Crown and Charter Companies. In essence, the sovereignty of the King and Queen can reign back again over the government and their institutions in of their failure to adhere to the original conventions, protocols and agreements as mandated by the Treaties pertaining to Mindanao, Sulu, Sabah, North Borneo and the Malayan precincts and prefectures. The purpose of restoring back the original sovereignty is to unite the country under the sole authority of the Royal Imperial Lupah Sūg Islamic United Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo for the development that will rebuild communities as one nation and to make the Philippines, a great nation again, Rajah Mamay ended.

They met in Seoul, but what are the take aways from the meetings between Park, Abe, and Li? Tension in the South China Sea has been brewing for some time, but now that The Hague is getting into the mix, will it escalate things at a faster pace? These stories and more from the region, this week. What are the key take aways from the Seoul Summits? This past weekend Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and South Korean President Park Guen-hye met in Seoul. You know by now, it was the first such meeting between the three countries and pundits placed the bar so low for the gathering, that they called it a success that they met. This week on the podcast Michael Cucek, Adjunct Professor Waseda University in Tokyo, unpacks the summit weekend. Tension brews in the South China Sea Beijing asserts the South China Sea is their sovereign territory, and while Vietnam and the Philippines have made small challenges to that claim, it wasn’t until the United States got into the game that the war of words between competing interests truly started to heat up. But even with these stronger words being wielded, has tension in the region truly escalated to palpable levels? Scott Harold, Deputy Director, of the RAND Corporation’s Center for the Asia Pacific Policy has the answer. In China, one child is not enough According to a statement from Communist Party leaders in Beijing, married couples will be afforded the opportunity to have a second child, if they so choose, once "a final plan for the policy change will be ratified by the annual session of China's top legislature,” which will take place in March 2016. But some argue, changing the policy might be too little too late... and prove ineffective at increasing population growth. Muslims face uncertain future as Myanmar election looms Sunday, November 8th, Myanmar will hold general elections as it moves away from brutal military rule to a more democratic society. While some call that vote, historic, not everyone is going to be able to vote. Rohingya Muslims, which the state does not claim are among the disenfranchised and say their future remains uncertain. South Korean government gets into history books South Korea's government on Tuesday said it would publish history textbooks for use in schools beginning in 2017, taking a step necessary to put an end to the spread of misinformation and "ideological bias”. The government says many private textbooks now used by middle and high schools try to glorify arch-rival North Korea by discrediting the achievements of the capitalistic South. However, fueled suspicion about President Park Geun-hye's motive behind the policy. Beijing and Taipei hold historic meeting This weekend in Singapore,Chinese President Xi jinping and Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou will meet. It would mark the first face-to-face meeting between the two heads of state since the nationalists lost the Chinese civil war and retreated to Taiwan in 1949. Raping UBER driver sentenced to life One of the chief criticisms of UBER, is that unsavory elements manage to sneak through the vetting process and end up hurting passengers in some way. The stories that typically surface the most, is when a driver sexually assaults a passenger. This week an Indian court handed down a life sentence to one driver who took things too far.

The East Asia Development Board, or Kōain (興亜院), was a cabinet level agency in the Empire of Japan that operated between 1938 and 1942. It was created on 18 November 1938 under the first Konoe administration to coordinate the government's China policy. Kazushige Ugaki (1868 – 1956) (Almost Prime Minister) a Japanese general in the Imperial Japanese Army a Minister of War & Governor General of Korea the 5th Principal of Takushoku University the Japanese Foreign Minister under the first Konoe administration Ugaki resigned in September 1938, frustrated aboutKonoe's attempt to establish the Koain (the East Asia Development Board). Kazushige Ugaki negotiated with Robert Leslie Craigie, the British Ambassador to Japan. The negotiation had good response. However, Prime Minister Konoe crashed the negotiation. To cease the battle with China, Kazushige Ugaki, a general in the Imperial Japanese Army, almost Prime Minister, was in charge of the Japanese Foreign Minister under the first Konoe administration Kazushige Ugaki negotiated with Robert Leslie Craigie, the British Ambassador to Japan. The negotiation had good response. However, Prime Minister Fumimaro Konoe suddenly authorized the establishment of a central agency to coordinate all government activities and economic initiatives on the Chinese mainland, aside from the issue of formal diplomatic relations, which remained within the purview of the Foreign Ministry. Ugaki resigned in September of 1938, frustrated about Konoe's attempt to establish the Koain (the East Asia Development Board). Ugaki resigned after only 4 months. 【Final Report by Sir R. Craigie on conclusion of his Mission to Japan, 1943】 ・Indeed throughout the year 1941 the general burden of the warnings sent from this post had been that a Japanese attack, if not averted by diplomatic means, would be on a greater scale and take place at an earlier date than many British authorities appeared to anticipate. ・When I pointed out to the Foreign Office my misgivings as to the way things were going, urging that it was we, rather than the United States.who might be expected to bear the brunt of a breakdown and that it seemed essential for His Mejesty's Government to be more fully informed of the details of these vital negotiations, I received a sympathetic reply, but was told that His Majesty's Government had, nevertheless, decided that the discussions must be left solely in the hands of the Unaited States Government, in whose conduct of the matter they had full confidence. ・This was the situation when the Japanese made their compromise proposal of the 20th November(paragraph 42 of enclosure 1), which, with its offer of the evacuation of Southern Indo-China, aimed at the virtual restoration of the status quo ante. I urged strongly upon His Majesty’s Government that, subject to certain amendments which I had reason to believe could be secured from the Japanese Government, a modus vivendi on these lines should be concluded. In my view the withdrawal of Japanese troops from Southern Indo-China and the limitation of their number in Northern Indo-China to one or two divisions would have meant so complete a dislocation of the Japanese army’s plans for an attack on Malaya, or indeed, for any further southward advance, that it would have been well worth purchasing at the cost of the supply to Japan of oil and other raw materials in quantities insufficient to add materially to Japan’s war potential. Mr. Hull did, indeed, prepare a draft answer to Japan along the above lines which, subject to certain essential modifications of from, could have been made acceptable to the Japanese Government; this constructive counter-proposal was never submitted to the Japanese Government, owing, it would appear, to the opposition of the Chinese Government. ・After two and a quarter years of struggle, Great Britain and her Allies appeared to us in Tokyo to be at length slowing gaining the upper hand over Germany; the Russian armies in Libya were pushing beyond Benghazi; from the United States we were already receiving a magnificent contribution in material and that type of active naval assistance which was most vital to us namely, the convoying of ships across the Atlantic and an “undeclared” war on German submarines and surface raiders. So far as could been seen from Tokyo we were on the way to winning the battle of the Atlantic and were passing from the defensive to the offensive on the other fronts. The war had thus reached the stage at which, for the first time, even to the prejudiced eyes of the Japanese, the prospects of German victory began to be doubtful. Admittedly this was a dangerous phase, for the Japanese militarists would know that their last chance of effective intervention must come before German offensive power showed definite signs of collapse.

포스트 차이나 - 동남아, 한국의 새 성장동력 The Moon Jae-in administration recently revealed its plan to boost South Korea's economic relations with Southeast Asian nations. And after suffering unprecedented losses from China's economic retaliation over the deployment of the U.S. THAAD anti-missile system,... more and more Korean firms are also seeking to increase their business in Southeast Asia. Lee Unshin reports. Countries in Southeast Asia are rapidly becoming major trade partners of South Korea. Within just a year, the growth rate of South Korea's exports to members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations has grown by nearly 30-percent. The 10 member ASEAN region is seen as a place of ever growing economic potential - with the region's GDP consistently increasing since 2010...and the upswing is said to continue for the coming years. (Korean) "The rising economy leads to market expansion, so ASEAN makes the ideal trade partner for Korea. But with economic growth, the region's demand will also become more sophisticated. Producing high quality goods and a feasible marketing strategy are a must for Korean companies." Researchers agree that Korea's economic interests have been focused too much on China and the U.S for years now - all the more reason why long-term, solid business plans for Southeast Asia are needed, as many countries in the region are considered a relatively 'new market' for Korean firms. (Korean- ) "As of now Korea's trade with ASEAN is rather limited, highly concentrated in Vietnam and Indonesia. In order to expand the horizon, we'll need thorough market research of each country as well as different, long-term business plans made specifically for each region." The diversification of global markets is not only an opportunity, but a much needed strategy for Korea. Since July last year, the loss sustained by local firms from China's economic retaliation over the deployment of the U.S. missile defense system, THAAD, is estimated to be over 1 billion US dollars. Experts say it was a wakeup call for Korea and with that, businesses across various sectors need to make sure to avoid the risks of over-dependency on limited number of markets. (Korean) "China is expected to keep nurturing the growth of its own companies. And as long as North Korea's provocations linger as the root source that complicates the relations between Seoul and Beijing, it's best that South Korea lessens its economic reliance on China."

This video shows you that Rise of the White Hulls in Southeast Asia. Support Us: Headphone: https://amzn.to/2Mg6bAm Amazon TV Stick: https://amzn.to/2OZHnuS Mi band: https://amzn.to/2nu0xfY By the turn of the twenty-first century, coast guard organizations in Southeast Asia have been emerging as the new maritime constabulary force. Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam have established or improved their respective coast guard organizations independent of the navy. The mandates of these agencies are not limited to maritime-security and law enforcement, but also includes maritime-safety and marine-environmental protection. While there appears to be some regional momentum behind the creation of coast guards in each country, it is worthy to note that the geographic location of these countries coincides with the Japanese sea trade route starting from the South China Sea to Malacca Strait. While some scholars argue that coast guard organizations in the region are rising due to the territorial conflicts stirred up by the rise of China, current perspectives are still deficient on rationally explaining how these militarily inferior white hulls fit into military strategies that aim to secure territorial claims in the South China Sea. Other leading maritime scholars argue that the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) has led states to recognize the need to create another maritime agency that is different from the navy to enforce laws at sea, manage maritime resources, and safeguard national interests. However, this argument does not explain why the upsurge in coast guard development did not immediately transpire after UNCLOS entered into force in 1996 and why such an effect could only be found in the Southeast Asian region. Although, it is known that Japan had been the main supporter of the emergence in coast guard , it is crucial to understand how its imperialist past was completely forgotten by sovereign sensitive countries in the region. The Japan Coast Guard’s role was only highlighted during the early 2000s when the spike of piracy incidents had increased in Malacca Strait. Nevertheless, this claim does not address the issues on region’s sovereign sensitivities and the imperialist legacy of Japan. Citing the experience of the United States in 2003, when they proposed the Regional Maritime Security Initiative (RMSI) to counter piracy in the region both Indonesia and Malaysia rejected this plan. However, when Japan hosted HACGAM and introduced the Asian Maritime Security Initiative (AMSI), without an ounce of criticism, it was unanimously approved. Likewise, it is noteworthy to mention that Indonesia and Malaysia even asked Japan to help them build their coast guards of their own patterned before the Japan Coast Guard to address these non-traditional security threats. Still, the question remains why they trusted Japan? To answer this, it is necessary to look at the past engagements of JCG to these littoral states.
