East Asia and Oceania remains the world’s growth engine despite a challenging external environment. The vital region embodies explosive economic growth, vibrant societies, modernizing militaries, rich cultural traditions amid globalization, and strategic competition among major powers. As a result, there is rising media coverage of the region recently. Countries in the region range from China, the world’s second largest economy, to the Pacific Island countries, some of the world’s smallest and most remote.
