For economic, security, diplomatic and military reasons, China has been developing stronger relationships with Association for Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. China’s “charm offensive” has become an integral part of its overall strategy to shape a new regional structure, which is more conducive to China's evolving strategic interests in the region.

    China, a very interesting place.
    Just returned from a visit to Qingdao, Shandong in northern china. this city will host the sailing events for the Olympics, the investment in this city and the hole province is enormous a lot of Middle Eastern and European money as well as local money being invested in new factories and property, as well as the local infurstructure. This is also ture for most of the country.

    They are out to be the leader in the asian region that's for sure. They have moved quickly with agreements for investment and trade with most of their neighbours. So watch out world as they have only just started.

    Some more info sites for anyone.
