China's dynamic economic growth and the successful reforms significantly affected the self-esteem of the Chinese nation and its leadership. Beijing gradually has changed the very quality of its foreign policy and become more confident and purposeful. China safely gets out of the shadows, successfully contrasting Chinese Peaceful Rise or Development concepts to the China's threat theory, intensively promoting soft power policy and using public diplomacy. Moreover, Beijing offers the World its own initiatives or concepts like - Chinese Dream or Great Dream, Community of Common destiny, as well as the initiative of New Great Silk Road (NGSR) - "the Silk Road Economic Belt" and "the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road." The China's President Xi Jinping's NGSR is not only a mega-project designed to deepen Eurasian regional and interregional cooperation, it supports the ideas of building a "community with common destiny" and accepting "greater responsibility" that international community expects Beijing to take up. Chinese Dream may become an ideological basis to propose NGSR initiative that in its turn designed to contribute to the proliferation of the Chinese Dream in China and beyond.

With the maturity of the EU as a regional andinternational actor, its role in the foreign policyrelations has acquired an individual form. Over thelast two decades, the EU has been usinginterregionalism as one of its foreign policy toolsto conduct its external policies in Asia, LatinAmerica, and Africa. This paper concentrates on theEU s interregional ties with Asia, examining theAsia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process and the EU-ASEANpartnership. The primary question to be answered iswhether interregionalism is a viable foreign policytool to pursue the EU s external relations in Asia.Departing from this point, the paper argues that thesuccess of the interregional relations is very muchdependent on the level of integration of thecounterpart regions involved in the process.Moreover, the paper demonstrates that the growingregional cohesion of the ASEAN as a regionalorganization has huge impact on overall success ofthe interregional EU-ASEAN partnership, whilerelatively low productivity of the ASEM could be bestexplained by the lack of cohesion among the Asiancounterparts of the EU involved in the process.

Multinational enterprises have become one of the distinctive institutions of our times. Controversy over their economic and political effects, and over appropriate public policy responses, has become common in home and host countries and in international agencies. Much of this debate is reminiscent of the role of large corporations generally, particularly in their interregional and intergroup effects. The multinational setting, however, would have raised distinctive issues even apart from the strong surges of nationalism and anti-imperialism which have marked recent history. Canada has a long and unusual experience with such enterprises. Foreign control of capital in the nonfinancial industries (manufacturing, petroleum and gas, other mining and smelting, utilities, merchandising) was already 20 percent in 1930 and 25 percent in 1948. It rose to 36 percent by the late 1960s, but has since receded to about 30 percent. In 1975, fully 55 percent of the capital in manufacturing was controlled outside Canada, as was 72 per cent of that in petroleum and gas, and 58 percent in other mining. These figures exceed those of other developed countries, although there have been striking increases in recent decades. About 80 percent of the direct invest ment capital in Canada is from the United States. Recently, Canadians have xi xii FOREWORD become aware of a surge of Canadian direct investment abroad, which on a flow basis has exceeded inflows (exclusive of retained earnings) for most of the 1970s.

CIUTI-Forum 2009

The CIUTI FORUM 2009 Translating the Future focused on translation in a world in transition within the context of globalization. Recent political developments seem to be leading to a world society that is polycentric and multipolar. An international system will emerge that will be characterized by a new inter-regionalisation through a large number of interregional arrangements of various forms of economic integration projects all over the world. Following the example of the European Union, they will evolve into competing regional entities like ASEAN in Southeast Asia, NAFTA in North America, or MERCOSUR in South America. Confronted with these new geopolitical settings, the CIUTI FORUM 2009 focused on these regions which will probably develop into strong economic powers, alongside the United States and the European Union. Owing to this multi-lateralizing inter-regionalism, the exchange of goods, products and services in industry and finance will continue growing exponentially, a fact that correlates with an extremely high demand for foreign language services of all kinds. This increased need has resulted in new challenges and tasks, not only for practicing professional translators and their professional organizations, but also for translation education institutions. Contributions are made in either French or English, special stress is put on the training and intercultural communication with China, taking into account the economic and political issues, on which experts focus from an international, interdisciplinary and multifaceted perspective.

In this book, Yasheng Huang makes a provocative claim: the large absorption of foreign direct investment (FDI) by China is a sign of some substantial weaknesses in the Chinese economy. The primary benefits associated with China's FDI inflows are concerned with the privatization functions supplied by foreign firms, venture capital provisions to credit-constrained private entrepreneurs, and promotion of interregional capital mobility. Huang argues that one should ask why domestic firms cannot supply the same functions. China's partial reforms, while successful in increasing the scope of the market, have so far failed to address many allocative inefficiencies in the Chinese economy.

We assume that the ideas, interests and strategies of regional powers are highly significant variables, with the power to influence foreign policy. Yet while comparative research projects involving OECD-countries are fairly common, comparative research integrating developing regions is still rare, despite the fact that these countries are among the key actors of the twenty-first century. This collection emphasizes the role of regional powers in intra-regional, interregional and global contexts, analyzing the rise of regional powers from a comparative perspective. In so doing, the book explains how these powers have power to shape regional and global politics.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,7, Hertie School of Governance (Master of Public Policy), language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction 'Latin America is absent from the European agenda, except when a summit between the two regions comes around and Europe cannot show up empty-handed.' This statement from the Spanish Elcano Royal Institute can be underlined by trade figures. 2008 only one Latin American country (Brazil) was among the 20 most important EU trading partners. The EU's economic relations with countries like Vietnam, Kazakhstan or Angola are more substantial than with Venezuela, Colombia or Peru. While economic importance of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) for the EU is small and even declining , relations are far more vital for the other side. In 2007, the EU was the second largest trading partner for the region and provided most foreign direct investments and official development assistance. Nonetheless, with only 4% of EU development aid, the region receives least in global comparison. From a LAC viewpoint, the relations have fallen short of expectations considering the strong historic and cultural ties and the hope created by the launch of a new strategy in the mid-90s promising greater access to the European market. Since 1999 five EU-LAC summits have been held declaring an interregional approach and the vision of a Bi-regional Strategic Partnership but no significant progress has been achieved. In May 2010 another summit will take place, this time under Spanish Presidency, and skepticism exists whether great advancement can be reached. The paper will outline today's EU-LAC relations and give an outlook for the future. A changed global scenario requires a new approach towards LAC which needs to consider the shortcomings in internal integration as well as the differences in development within the region. A pure focus on bilateral agreements will not be a sustainable solution. Moreover, trade centered negotiations with LAC countries do not acknowledge the growing political influence of the region. Thus, political dialogue and social issues should play a stronger role in interregional relations.
