[Topics]Asia-Pacific

The Asia-Pacific is a dynamic region that represents approximately fifty percent of global GDP and accounts for about forty percent of world trade. In the midst of the changing dynamics in the region's security architecture caused partly by the rise of China and India, international relations in the Asia-Pacific are characterized by both cooperation and competition. JIIA addresses economic, political, and security developments in the region and delves into Japan's role in the Asia-Pacific.
