"Free Trade Agreements and Regional Integration in East Asia: Prospects, Challenges and Implications"

27-29th November 2014, Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth Australia

With the recent financial and economic crisis, globalization and regional economic integration has become again the focus of intense global interest and debate. Led by the rapidly growing Chinese economy, the East Asian region is forging closer economic ties than ever before, and remains the most dynamic region in the world. It is believed that open regionalism can contribute substantially to enhanced productivity and economic growth, and to poverty reduction, within the region. The emerging trilateral Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiation between China, Japan and South Korea provides new evidence of ongoing Asian economic integration. Given the economic size of the three countries and their respective shares in the global trade system, the social, economic, environmental and cultural implications of such an economic integration in the East Asian region would have an enormous impact world-wide.
