外文标题：China scores big at Apec summit
BEIJING: Chinese President Xi Jinping emerged stronger after the two-day Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, which was known to have been dominated by the United States in the recent past. APEC accepted two important proposals that were pushed by China to widen its own sphere of influence.
India, which did not attend despite being invited to join as an observer, may have to consider the implications of China's achievements at the summit. Pakistan and Bangladesh attended as observers, according to diplomats based in Beijing. Xi had invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi to attend during their meeting in September.
Xi clearly stole the show at the summit, with US President Barack Obama talking about accommodating China, observers said. Leaders of Asia-Pacific countries agreed to move towards a new free-trade zone strongly backed by China. The Beijing-supported Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP) is regarded as a challenge to the Transpacific Partnership (TPP), the US trade pact that excludes China and Russia.
Though Obama said the US-backed TPP was not meant to contain China's influence, it was clear China had created a powerful rival to it in the form of the FTAAP.

China is changing the world economic order. India should join FTAAP. I admire Bangladesh courage to free itself from the dominance of India and Pakistan is looking West and North to expand its business and has ignored if India exists.

China is real threat to world peace ,
lets wait for Modiji..
This will be just one of the meetings, where everyone attend the rave party and go back home and introspect what all had happened and realize we shouldn't have done that way..!.. I doubt any substantial thing is going to happen..!
