At present, Asia is facing potential challenges as well as opportunities. As a whole, Asia is still the region with the greatest economic vigor and potential for development. The further development of the economic globalization and the rapid advance of science and technology make it possible for the various countries in Asia to introduce new technology and to explore the international market so as to promote the economic growth of their own countries.
However, we can not be too optimistic over the situation in that further efforts are expected to combat terrorism. Having brought the opportunities for development, the economic globalization makes the international economy even more uncertain, and it more difficult for the economies in the region to restructure their economies. Similarly, it makes these countries more likely to be impacted by the external factors.
