Summary of this issue

 While countries like China enjoy their continued fast economic growth and increase their presence in world economy, both U.S. and European countries are starting to focus more on disadvantages of globalization. There is a growing concern that President Trump’s protectionist policies such as withdrawing from TPP, threatening to leave NAFTA, hiking tariffs may lead to a trade war. These US actions and uncertainty over “After Brexit” are risks to other countries. Under these circumstances, this issue of AEPR discusses international financial architecture, the future of East Asia’s trade, instability in Europe, the impact of Trump’s policies, and China’s development finance.
