China and ASEAN:Strengthening Future Relations
The foundation of the relationship between ASEAN and China is strong,based on trust that has been achieved and a conducive strategic environment. Trust has been achieved because of China’s many initiatives towards ASEAN,such as the FTA with ASEAN,the signing to the ASEAN TAC (Treaty of Amity and Cooperation),an active and responsible participation in regional institutions in the Asia Pacific and East Asian Region (APEC-PECC-ARF-CSCAP),the intention to have a code of conduct on the South China Sea,and several CBMs in the security field. Besides these regional efforts,China has also promoted cooperation with individual ASEAN members in many fields,economic,political,cultural as well as security. These actions show Chinese goodwill and friendship. Apart from all above,this paper will propose some recommendations on how to strengthen the relationship between China and ASEAN in the future.
