Shultz declared Thursday.

They steam out of West Coast ports every day, an average of 26 ships carrying 3,000 tons of cargo each, from tiny computer chips to gigantic earthmovers for buyers in China, Japan and other nations of the vast East Asian market.

I really must strongly disagree with Waxman. Though, what he says about liberalism may be true, what he says about Reaganism is not. Reaganism, a term which I presume he means to be conservatism thwarted by liberals in Congress, is not stagnant and uncompassionate.

Access to airline routes could become the next battle in ongoing trade disputes between the United States and Pacific Rim nations. At issue is whether current bilateral agreements give U.S.-based carriers unfair advantages in competing with Asian airlines within the Asian market. The 15-member Orient Airlines Assn., including Japan Air Lines and Cathay Pacific, recently declared it would press Asian governments to renegotiate their agreements with the United States that permit U.S.

Only a few weeks before Secretary of State George P. Shultz stopped in Jakarta last month, the Indonesian regime had received another visitor from a less likely place: Tsutomo Kawara, the director general of the Japan Defense Agency. "The Indonesian press noted that it was the first time any leading Japanese defense official had visited Jakarta in 45 years," one senior U.S. diplomat in Asia reported afterward.

Leaders of 12 Pacific Rim nations tentatively agreed Monday to open the way for "three Chinas"--the People's Republic of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong--to join their fledgling international organization within the next few years. The decision apparently clears the way for China to become the only Communist economy in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), an organization founded last year to promote trade and economic links among the nations of the Pacific Rim.
