Abstract:
Asian foreign policy, and particularly Japanese foreign policy, is gradually becoming more proactive. There are four main reasons for this. First, the end of the Cold War has forced countries to shift from their traditional security concerns to an emphasis on economic relations and industrial competitiveness. Second, the end of the Cold War bipolarity has led to greater multi-polarity, and this heightened economic interdependence has resulted in more complex interlinkages of national economic interests. Third, the tremendous economic growth of Asian countries is decreasing the economic frictions with America and Europe. And fourth, the sheer size of the Japanese economy and Japanese assistance programs has forced Japan to become more aware of its role and influence in the world.
