In November 2001, China and the ten ASEAN countries reached a consensus on the establishment of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), signifying its solid move towards participating in regional economic cooperation. The acceptance and deployment of regional economic cooperation organization by China's diplomacy, in essence, represents China's conception of today's international political and economic order and attempts to change this order, at least in part. The theoretical foundation of this conception is associated with China's perception of the international regime, interdependence and regional economic integration. Among the existing regional economic organizations, North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is the one that is best known for its extraordinary achievements. To the United States, the NAFTA means not only an enormous market that is both stable and free to enter for US products, but also a multiplier for the US in today's international political and economic competition. Through regional economic cooperation, the US has not only enhanced and developed its strengths at the regional level, but also in world politics and economy. "Hard stones from another mountain can carve jade", the way the US uses the institutional framework of NAFTA to pursue regional economic cooperation and implement its diplomatic policy deserves to be studied and referred to. These studies can provide experience and guidance for the development of CAFTA, and also provide theoretical basis for China to set up the new international political and economic order.
