Specifically, the study explores Chinas economic, political, and security roles in Southeast Asia, Oceania, Central Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. The report also examines Chinas bilateral relationships with the key states in each region. Finally, the report contemplates the consequences of the Chinese strategy toward the Developing World for the United States.
