    The Coming Asian Century: challenges for the West

    This event marks the launch Parag Khanna’s book; The Future is Asian: Global Order in the 21st Century. In the 19th century; the world was Europeanized. In the 20th century; it was Americanized. Now; in the 21st century; the world is being irreversibly Asianized. The “Asian Century” is even bigger than you think. Far greater than just China; the new Asian system taking shape is a multi-civilizational order spanning Saudi Arabia to Japan; and Russia to Australia—linking five billion people through trade; finance and infrastructure networks that together represent 40 percent of global GDP. China has taken a lead in building the new Silk Roads across Asia; but it will not lead it alone. Rather; Asia is returning to the stable multipolar order that existed long before European colonialism and American dominance; with India and Southeast Asia coming into their own as economic and strategic hubs. The world has gotten used to hearing “America First”—but is it ready for “Asia First”? Get ready to see the world; and the future; from the Asian point-of-view.
