- 南海研究院-发表论文 
中国—东盟自由贸易区的建立 ,是以全球贸易自由化的迅速兴起和中国加入世贸组织的周边影响为背景的。中国与东盟正式签署了《中国与东盟全面经济合作框架协议》 ,确定了中国—东盟自由贸易区的目标、范围、措施、时间表 ,它为建立中国—东盟自由贸易区设计了基本架构。中国—东盟自由贸易区的发展进程 ,将面临来自区域内外的一系列挑战 ,但在中国与东盟之间共同利益远大于分歧 ,合作机遇远大于挑战。The emergence of China-ASEAN Free Trade Area is by no means a contingency, but against the background that global trade liberalization has risen rapidly and China's accession to WTO has had an impact on surrounding areas. The Framework Agreement of China-ASEAN Overall Economic Cooperation has been signed formally between China and ASEAN, which defines and fixes the objectives, sphere, measures and timetable of China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, providing a basic framework for the establishment of the Free Trade Area. Indeed, China -ASEAN Free Trade Area will face a series of challenges from in and out of the region in the process. However, between China and ASEAN, their common interests are much greater than differences and opportunities for cooperation much more than challenges.
