The rise of China over the past two decades represents one of the most important shifts in global geopolitics. Nowhere has China’s growing global influence been more prolific than within Asia. This article examines China’s growing interests within the ‘Greater Mekong Subregion’ (GMS). Drawing together Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China, the GMS is one of the most successful regional integration initiatives in East Asia. Through increasing bilateral development assistance and private sector investment China has played a key role in Mekong connectivity. However, Chinese interests in the region have not always been well received. This paper examines China’s growing interests within the subregion and some of the challenges that growing Chinese aid and private-sector investment have created for Mekong residents.
