US Role in the Leadership of Economic Integration in East Asia



The leadership issue of East Asia Economic Integrationhas been greatly conditioned by the international system,especially by US. This paper expounds US role in theleadership issue of East Asia economic integrationfrom both perspectives of East Asian countries and US.Plenty of East Asian countries rely on US as the leaderin politics, an indispensible partner in economy, the“Umbrella” for security and the “Balancer” in geopoliticalstrategy. At the same time, Washington is concernedabout another regional integration in East Asia like theEuropean Union led by France and Germany. US tries toguarantee its leadership in this area through maintainingthe complexion of ASEAN functioning as leadership, andChina and Japan containing each other. Therefore, EastAsia countries have to take into thorough considerationthe response and interests of US while promoting regionaleconomic cooperation.
