  • Asia
  • 30 november 2022

The emergence of Asia, China in particular, has enormous impact on the contemporary world. Asia is not a uniform region, nor is it moving toward any degree of uniformity. It is integrating economically but faces political and security challenges. Our knowledge of and dialog with Asian countries falls noticeably short of the importance our trade with them has gained. Brazil must first learn what the
difficulties are and then redouble efforts to build stronger links with Asia.
