With the growing bifurcation of world order through the increased rivalry between the US and China, there is a tendency that the term โ€œAsia-Pacificโ€ is being eliminated gradually, which is unfortunate in terms of Asian social construction, diverse cultural identities, and inclusive geographical definitions.

During Barack Obamaโ€™s administration, โ€œpivot to Asiaโ€ was the mantra for the United Statesโ€™ approach to the Asia-Pacific region considering the increased notations of concepts such as โ€œthe rise of Asiaโ€ and โ€œthe Asian Century.โ€ The insinuation was that these phenomena were centered in the Asia-Pacific and were becoming China-centric, which was undesirable for the Americaโ€™s dominance of the global order.
