Great power competition continued to affect regional security in East Asia in 2021, with intensified rivalry between China and the United States. These trends solidified as a result of evolving US partnerships designed to counter China’s influence in the region—including the exploration of partnerships with likeminded countries in Europe and Asia through the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad); the creation of a trilateral security pact between Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States (AUKUS); and closer coordination with allies Japan and South Korea. There were also growing concerns over China’s assertive foreign policy and military actions in the Taiwan Strait and South China Sea (SCS). Moreover, China and Russia’s deteriorating relations with the West and their rivalry with the US helped bring the two sides closer together.1
