Empowering the Belt and Road with Energy and Resource Cooperation

Shi Ze

Given the economic endowment, development needs and complementary advantages of the countries concerned, energy and resource cooperation is the most practical and feasible way for the Belt and Road Initiative to take root. As an area that bears strategic implications and requires long-term efforts, Belt and Road energy and resource cooperation needs continuous exploration besides down-to-earth advancing of specific projects.


Trade and Investment Facilitation under the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation Framework

Tian Xinqing

Despite their economic potential, the Lancang-Mekong countries' performance in trade and investment facilitation is far from satisfactory. Enhancing the facilitation level is key to promoting the LMC to a deeper stage, and relevant measures can serve to drive domestic reforms, increase competitiveness of sub-regional countries, and realize coordinated development.


Russia-US Rivalry and Accelerated Geopolitical Change in the Middle East

Dong Manyuan

The Middle East geopolitical landscape is undergoing accelerated transformation, distinguished by Russia-US rivalry and supplemented by Iran-Saudi contest. Divisions among regional camps have become even more distinct in the absence of effective leadership in the Arab world, and the Kurdish factor still plays an important role in the evolution of regional geopolitics despite partial setbacks.


Appeals and Constraints of Trump's "America First"

Shen Yamei

"America First," featuring its appeals in prioritization and choice of new policies, has become a constant motif of Trump's diplomacy, but shortcomings of leadership capabilities and constraints from domestic politics have dulled its initial cutting edge. Ironically, Trump's confusion in strategic thinking of "America First" might make the US the biggest loser of the concept he has long advocated.


New Development and Implications of Japan's Security Policy

Zhu Haiyan

On the pretext of containing North Korea's nuclear and missile threats as well as China's emergence, Japan has been vigorously shifting its security policy with "self-defense" as a major objective. Such a transformation would alter Japan's national development trajectory and also generate profound impacts on the Japan-US alliance and the regional security order.


Developments in US Trade Policy toward China and Outlook for China-US Trade Relations

Gong Ting

Characterized by increasing consideration of non-economic factors, Trump's economic and trade policy toward China mirrors a dramatic concern about and increasing alert against China's growing power. Besides handling differences with sufficient wisdom to avoid strategic misjudgment, enlarging common economic interests can make the "Chinese Dream" and "Make America Great Again" promote rather than restrain each other.
