Abstract—ASEAN-China is one of the most complex relationships in the Asia-Pacific region. Over the course of history of many ups and downs in recent decades, China and ASEAN have come together, working closely together for mutual development. In the 21st century, economic relations as well as political relations between China and ASEAN have made positive changes. However, this relationship still shows many difficulties and obstacles that the two sides need to solve and overcome in order to benefit from potential of each other. This paper presents and compares the factors that affect ASEAN's economic and geopolitical potential as a counterpart to China in the region.
