Example text

This external policy of promoting regional integration is highly diversified in both the substance and objectives, and varied according to geo-­economic, political, and strategic considerations. Trade remains always a fundamental component of the policy, though other more political elements that make up the internal EU structure can be found in the external agreements. Though motivated by market access considerations, trade clauses are now accompanied by provisions on competition rules, product standards, environmental protection rules, and intellectual property rights, leading some analysts to see in these developments the export of the European model of governance (Lavenex 2008).

Trade flows and inter-­regional economic co-­operation have increased significantly on a regional and bilateral basis, with a few individual countries (China, Singapore, Japan, India) taking the lion’s share of economic flows. Market access and strengthening the EU’s political and economic presence across the region as a global economic actor are the key objectives in the EU’s Asia strategy. Unlike other regions, the EU has tended to downplay the policy of promoting regional integration in Asia, and mainly confines this discourse on regional integration promotion to the case of south Asia, and the South Asian Association for Regional Co-­operation (SAARC) regional grouping.
