Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the interaction of geopolitics and “geoeconomics” in the Pacific Rim. It discusses the importance of international supply chains, implications of China’s political presence in the region, and the role played by multinational firms. It highlights the divergence between geopolitical objectives pursued by the United States and Australia to contain China and geoeconomic realities that strengthen China’s position. This chapter contends that the Asian Pacific region’s embrace of free markets, free trade, and private enterprise has enabled it to race ahead, epitomized by the case of China.

Keywords: geopolitics, geoeconomics, Pacific Rim, international supply chains, China, United States, Australia, free markets, private enterprise
