Title: Chinese Geopolitics in Southeast Asia: A New Pattern of Economic Power?
Southeast Asia is of highest geostrategic interest for China as rising Great Power as well as for the U.S. and its ally Japan. Since the ‘Pivot to East Asia’ of the Obama administration in Washington in 2012 observers are discussing a ‘New Great Game’ in the region. But has China already established a ‘backyard’ by its economic activities in Southeast Asia? What is the spatial pattern of China’s activities? As an analysis of FDI stocks as well as trade related data show the region can be divided in several groups. (1) By trade and partly by FDI dominated Chinese Special Administrative Regions Hong Kong and Macao. (2) The by FDI strongly dominated Chinese small neighbour Laos. (3) Partly by FDI dominated countries like Cambodia, Myanmar, and Timor-Leste. (4) The independent Southeast Asian countries with different trade ties to China but mostly strong military or diplomatic ties to the U.S., Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei Darussalam. Therefore, Southeast Asia cannot be called a Chinese ‘backyard’ yet. But if U.S. president Trump will withdraw the U.S. attention from the region China could be able to achieve a hegemonic position in the region, soon.
