China & East Asia

In addition to China, countries in East Asia include Mongolia, South Korea, North Korea, and Japan.

From economic competition to nuclear power, the region’s countries present challenges and opportunities to the United States in terms of defense, security, and trade. Regional powerhouses have become global market leaders, and China looms large as Beijing expands its military, economic, and political influence worldwide.
