Abstract
Tremendous changes are going on in the Pacific Rim (PR) in the XXI century. Economic power of several states of the PR is rapidly strengthening, integration processes in the economy are gaining momentum, both on a bilateral basis in the form of free trade agreements, and in the form of the creation of extensive regional trade blocs. At the same time some disturbing trends are developing, such as worsening of territorial disputes in the sea and on land, the militarization of the region, the arms race.One of the most important factors influencing the developments in the region is strengthening of the economic and overall national strength of China, growing interest of Chinese leadership in expanding its presence in the near environment, and increasing its operating capacity - in other, more remote regions of the world.Another such a factor is a decision made in 2011 by the Obama administration on the «return» of the U.S. to East Asia, carried out with the support of traditional political- military tools. This decision is a part of the so-called «hedge policy», or «policy restrictions» of Beijing’s influence in the region.Taking all together it might increase US-China regional rivalry, acutely raises the question about the future of Sino- US relations and the potential for cjntradictions between the two powers.
Keywords
