This dissertation has done quite complete research on the basic questions of Japan's strategies on East Asian regional economic cooperation. Firstly, it introduced the status quo of East Asian regional economic cooperation and elaborated the basis of Japan's strategies towards East Asian regional economic cooperation from two aspects-its importance to Japan and the possibility for Japan's entry.This dissertation then analysized concretely Japan's strategies, explained the transformation of its strategies from relying on the multilateral system to focusing on regional cooperation and pointed out the short-term goals and the long-term of Japan's strategies towards East Asian regional economic cooperation. In the short run, Japan seeks to establish close economic relationships and sign agreements on regional cooperation with Korea and member states of ASEAN. While in the long run, Japan hopes to sign economic cooperation agreements with other Asian economic bodies including China. And the final goal is to establish East Asian Economic Cooperation System. Besides, this dissertation also addressed five characteristics of Japan's strategies.At present, Japan still faces several obstacles on carrying out its strategies: The economic depression within Japan is the internal factors; The trade frictions with other East Asian countries, Japan's attitude towards World War Two and its military expansion comprise the external factors, which results in the lack of trust on mutual economic cooperation between Japan and other East Asian countries, including China.East Asian Economic Cooperation is the choice of history and dooms to have a bright future. However, whether Japan will follow the trend of history and take effective actions to push forward its development still depends on whether Japan's government is willing to take concrete and sincere attitude towards it.
