Australia and Canada were important trading partners for China, but Beijing's most important relations with the developed world were with Japan and Europe (Bell 1991). For much of its long history, China has had the status of a major power. As China's economic stature grows so too will its impact on the security and politics of the region and the world.

The eight were Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, China, (the "Four Tigers") Japan and the newly industrialised economies (NIEs) of south-east Asia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The eight high performing Asian economies (HPAEs) mentioned here will be ...

  • Foods In Asia - 364 words
    Foods in Asia China The Chinese make full use of the many kinds of foods produced in china. Most of the basic foods -- rice, wheat, corn, potatoes, meat fish, and vegetables, are well known to us and are used in western cooking.

  • Marco Polo And His Travels Through Asia - 1,356 words
    Marco Polo And His Travels Through Asia Marco Polo and His Travels through Asia The Question I am asking in my essay is, Why did Marco Polo go? I think his reason for exploring new lands is not because he had dreams of conquest, but because he was in fact trying to find a new trading market. Marco Polo was born in Venice, Italy in 1254. His father Niccolo was a prosperous merchant who imported luxury goods from Asia. When Marco was just six years old, his father sailed off to Istanbul(then called Constantinople) and didnt come back for nine years. Marcos mother died shortly after his 16th birthday, just before his father got back from his voyage. Two years later he set out again, this time t ...

    Wrong Medicine For Asia The Wrong Medicine for Asia By JEFFREY D. SACHS CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- In a matter of just a few months, the Asian economies went from being the darlings of the investment community to being virtual pariahs. There was a touch of the absurd in the unfolding drama, as international money managers harshly castigated the very same Asian governments they were praising just months before. The International Monetary Fund has just announced a second bailout package for the region, about $20 billion for Indonesia. That should, in principal, boost confidence. But if it is tied to orthodox financial conditions, including budget cuts and sharply higher interest rates, the package co ...

  • Peter Gospel - 1,564 words
    1 Peter Gospel Biblical historians have many different opinions on who is responsible for the authorship of the New Testament writings.

Their different views of the authorship of 1 and 2 Peter will be discussed and compared in this paper. 1 Peter is a New Testament writing.
