This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the balance of power in East Asia. It suggests that China is unlikely to initiate a bid for regional hegemony and discusses the implications of the decision of the United States to pursue extra-regional hegemony rather than adopting the posture of an offshore balancer. The chapter also argues that East Asia has overcome the problems related to making credible commitment, and that it has fostered the macro trends and foundations for regional cooperation.
