Global Powers in the 21st Century

This chapter reveals that the United States and other countries need to re-assess China’s position in the changing international, geopolitical scenario. This is essential as China is emerging as a key strategic global power in all fields, be it military, economic, or political supremacy. Its existing international importance depends on a continually growing economy and its integration with the international, geopolitical landscape. China’s growing military strength poses potential threats to neighboring countries, and its political power is also growing in the regional and global context, as it has established strategic economic and political relationships with many countries. The country’s leaders continue to follow a policy of integrating Chinese territories into the mainland, modernizing the military and economy, and establishing its supremacy in the region.

Keywords:   United States, China, political clout, geopolitical landscape, military strength
