A New Great Power Engages with the Middle East: China’s Middle East Balancing Approach

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • As the People’s Republic of China emerges as a power with global reach, understanding its interactions with the
    range of states comprising the modern MENA region has become more urgent. It is beyond the scope of this paper to review in depth the economic, political, and strategic dimensions of Chinese interactions with the modern Middle East. Instead, this China Institute Occasional Paper will briefly sketch the interactions between China and the states of the MENA region in the early 21st century.

    Although this paper includes a short historical survey of China-Middle East relations, the focus is the present and future of the relationship, and existing economic linkages with the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Our hope is that gathering and publishing the core economic data will
    provide an important reference point for other researchers who are working on China – MENA relations.
