The rise of China is the most important development in East
Asia in recent times. It presents major opportunities and challenges, if
not threats, for ASEAN as a collective entity, and for the individual
countries that compose it. Whether ASEAN can develop a collective, let
alone effective response is far from clear. This paper explores and analyses
the forces that are likely to determine the outcome.
