Abstract

The possible creation of an Asian Economic Zone has been debated quite often in the last years. This is not shared by countries specially attached to the strict dimension of national sovereignty. The worldly trends of globalization and interdependence turn it into an urgency as Asia is required to consolidate its position in a world of regions and regionalisms.

Keywords: Asia, Asian Economic Zone, China, Japan, United States, European Union
