The Leading Power In East Asia Will Be Japan -- Not China

By 2040, Japan will rise as East Asia’s leading power. This is one of our most controversial forecasts at Geopolitical Futures. Our readers know that GPF is bearish on China. And while some may disagree on that point, they usually see that the reasoning is sound. China will face serious problems in coming years… problems that will strain the Communist Party’s rule. Japan, though, seems a bridge too far. Its population is less than a tenth of China’s size (and it’s not just aging… it’s shrinking). Japan also has a debt-to-GDP ratio over 229%. So, how is it that Japan will emerge in the next 25 years as East Asia’s most powerful country? … for more, go to 

US-led World Economic Disorder begins? (VIDEO: Donald Trump is a threat to human civilisation and the world) (VIDEO: Donald Trump's Favourite Things!)

KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 2018): Let the global trade war unleash World Economic Disorder!

That’s the beginning as the war-waging Donald Trump-led US pressures its allies, like Japan, Australia, India and others to follow and squeeze China’s rise in the world economy.

The cue for the start of dark days for the global economy comes with Japan and Australia’s support for the US to “slaughter” China’s telecommunications firms Huawei and ZTE from bidding on public contracts for building information systems.

Although the “conspiracy attack” is likely to affect or slow down China and the rest of the world’s economic growth, it is no threat to China’s future.

China’s 1.4 billion-people market place has no problem keeping the Chinese economy afloat but can the rest of the world sustain the global trade war onslaught in the long-term?

What is likely to be a stumbling block to the US-led global trade war conspiracy and demonising agenda is China’s multi-trillion-dollar Belt Road Initiative (BRI).

The BRI is backed by 90 countries and international organisations in Southeast Asia, Asia, Europe, the Scandinavian and Nordic states and Russia.

Yes! The US-led conspiracy to rock the World Economic Order is set to get nasty, ugly and inflict undue economic miseries on the weaker countries but the fittest will prevail as they continue to grow or rise with China.

Japan’s support for the US against China is also expected:

"Japan plans to block Huawei, ZTE from public procurement: report

Japan is reportedly planning to block Chinese telecommunications firms Huawei and ZTE from bidding on public contracts for building information systems.

Japanese newspaper Sankei Shimbun reported on Sunday that the Japanese government is considering the ban in a bid to prevent cyber-attacks and leaks of confidential information, and to align with the United States and Australia’s recent restrictions regarding the two Chinese tech companies.

The report published by the conservative newspaper said the government had already began discussing concrete measures, which would include a set of strict standards that companies need to satisfy to qualify for participating in public procurement for information systems.

It quoted an unnamed government official as saying that it was necessary to adopt the regulation and that exclusion from public procurement should guide the private sector too. However, there were also concerns that the move would adversely affect Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s upcoming visit to China in October and possibly run against World Trade Organization rules.

The plans have not been confirmed by the government or reported by other Japanese media.

In its report about the news, Chinese state-run media Global Times quoted a Chinese expert as questioning the authenticity of the report and saying that Japan’s ban on Huawei and ZTE would run against common sense considering the recent improvement in relations between the two countries.

The two Chinese telecoms have come under increased scrutiny abroad due to their suspected ties with the Chinese government and military.

Australia last week barred Huawei and ZTE from providing 5G technology for wireless networks in the country due to national security concerns while in the US, President Donald Trump signed a defence funding bill earlier his month that largely bans the government and its contractors from using Huawei and ZTE technologies and services.

Huawei, which is the world’s leading telecommunications firm, has responded by calling Australia’s decision “politically motivated” and saying the US federal ban was a “random addition” to the defence bill that was “ineffective, misguided, and unconstitutional”.

In its response to the Australian decision, the Chinese commerce ministry called on Australia to “look at the big picture of bilateral economic and trade cooperation, rather than easily interfere with and restrict normal business activities in the name of national security”.

Huawei and ZTE have faced spying allegations ever since a US congressional committee in 2012 first concluded that Huawei – founded by former People’s Liberation Army officer Ren Zhengfei in 1987 – and ZTE pose a risk to US national security and warned American companies not to use their equipment.

However, no evidence to support the allegations have to date been released to the public.
