Post G20 Seoul Summit Meeting and East Asia
This policy brief assesses the results of the G20 Seoul Summit Meeting, focusing on the "Northeast Asian Paradox". Despite a recent intensification of integration and negotiations between China, Korea and Japan , and despite economic similarities — all have large current account surpluses and significant dollar reserves invested in US Treasury bonds — there is next to no coordination of G20 policies between the three countries. The author provides a set of policy recommendations, concerning how Japan, China and Korea could work together to advance their agenda in the context of G20.
