This study explores the trade relationships between China and the ASEAN countries from a political and economic perspective. Historical background, current economic and development status, and trade progress for China and the ASEAN countries are reviewed. China's main strategies for establishing trade connections or ties with ASEAN countries are analyzed. Finally, variables are proposed that will foster the emergence of further trade development in an effort to convert the region's atmosphere of "China threat" to "China opportunity."
