The Concept of Asia-Pacific empowers the US to involve in all matters broadly related
to Asia-Pacific. In a simple form, the Asia-Pacific region is encompassing West Coast
of North America, Australia and major parts of Asia, having the potential to come up as
a geopolitical driving force. Asia-Pacific, comprising 22 percent of world land, is one of
the most significant regions that possess three well-known Economic Powers, i.e. the US,
Japan, and China. Similarly, the region is to be found strategically at an intersection of
Middle East, North America, East Asia, and Europe with worlds six largest ports and
five highly important Sea Lanes of Communication for international trading. Having so
much importance, Goldman Sachs confirms that hub of the global economic activities
will be transferred to Asia-Pacific decisively by 2050. The study will analyze the very
importance of Asia-Pacific, the US strategic reorientation and the Chinese counternarrative for the region.
