This article studies the major events of 1983 in East Asian politics and economics. There is a slight shift in the center of gravity of U.S. foreign policy from Europe toward Asia, also there is a shift from communist to non-communist countries in East Asia. The People's Republic of China no longer looms very significantly in American strategic consciousness. The trends that call for new weights and a greater balance in an overall policy for Asia and the Pacific are the emergence and unquestioned success of new forms of capitalism in non-communist East Asia. An American strategy for East Asia should give first priority to the opportunities and challenges posed by non-communist Asia.
