Abstract

Understanding geopolitics is crucial to understanding the investment environment. This is especially true in Asia. As a whole, Asia is a heterogeneous region that stands out for its export dependence and high rate of economic growth. Rapid economic expansion has led to reliance on natural and other resources, and increasing economic competition also raises the frequency of trade and trade-related disputes. This article provides an introduction to the geopolitics of Asia by considering how this region is shaped by conflicts over energy, natural resources, territory, and trade.

Keywords: Geopolitics, Asia, Investments
