Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
The world cannot be understood completely by simply relying on the yardstick of globalization that gives birth to the global community. The regionalization process is equally dominant with the emergence of regional organizations and regional society along-with the globalizing tendency of the present day world. The world arena allows for both regionalization and globalization to coexist in a sometimes competing and sometimes mutually supporting relationship.
