China's long-term approach of focusing on economic ties will beat that of the United States, which relies on military alliances in Asia, said a recent article published in Foreign Policy magazine.

The article, entitle "In Asia, China's long game beats America's short game," was written by Kishore Mahbubani, a distinguished fellow at the National University of Singapore's Asia Research Institute.

The United States is betting on the AUKUS, a security partnership among Australia, Britain and the United States, with its main feature of a promise to deliver submarines to Australia, the article wrote.

Instead, China is betting on using trade to win over its neighbors, particularly the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), it wrote.

Both approaches generate security, however, the former by deterrence, the latter by interdependence, it said.

"China's engagement with ASEAN is deep and broad," the article wrote.

China's economic ties with ASEAN will grow stronger as the economic miracle growth story of ASEAN is just beginning, it said.
