Across South-East Asia, nerves are fraying as America and China vie for influence over the region. Today Lloyd Austin, America’s defence secretary, kicks off a tour of the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam. He wants to “underscore the enduring US commitment to the region”, according to the Pentagon. But already South-East Asia is deeply intertwined with America’s foe. China is the region’s biggest trading partner and pumps in more investment than America does. Few dare to go against it. There have been clashes in the South China Sea between China and countries such as the Philippines and Vietnam. But both are careful to maintain diplomatic ties with their regional benefactor, despite rising anti-Chinese sentiment among their citizens. In its championing of a rules-based order, America has plenty to offer. But if Mr Austin asks South-East Asian leaders to pick a side, he may not like their choice. 在拔河比賽中,沒有人會想成為那條繩子。綜觀整個東南亞,緊張的情緒隨著美中兩國爭奪該地區的影響力而升高。在今天,美國國防部長 Lloyd Austin 將啟程訪問菲律賓、新加坡和越南。據五角大廈 (即美國國防部) 表示,Lloyd Austin 希望這次出訪能有「彰顯美國對該地區永久承諾」的效果。但東南亞早就和中國這個美國的敵人,深深地交織在一起。中國是該地區最大的貿易夥伴,其投資額大舉超越美國,也因此很少有國家敢跟中國作對。雖然菲律賓和越南在南 (中國) 海上與中國有所衝突,且國內反華的情緒持續高漲,但兩國仍然謹慎地與中國這個地區利多維持外交關係。在支持規則為準的秩序 (rules-based order) 方面,美國可以提供很多資源。但如果 Lloyd Austin 強迫東南亞的領導人們選邊站,他可能得不到太好的結果。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Tug-of-war (n.): 拔河 (名) ✅Nerve (n.): 神經、勇氣、膽量 (名) ✅Kick off (v.): 開始、展開 (動) ✅Commitment (n.): 承諾 (名) ✅Intertwined (adj.): 交織在一起的 (形) ✅Benefactor (n.): 恩人、施主 (名) ✅Sentiment (n.): 情緒、感情 (名) ✅Pick a side (v.): 選邊站 (動) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專:https://reurl.cc/Lddode ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號:https://reurl.cc/Oqqoq3 ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道:https://reurl.cc/Y665dX ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台:https://reurl.cc/k00WZr — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽:leontheeconomist@gmail.com 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤:leontheeconomist@gmail.com
