The paper by Dmitry Petrovsky (The Division of Foreign Relations of Moscow Patriarchate) and Dr. Elena Cherepneva (The Institute of oriental studies of the Russian Academy of sciences) informs that on May 17th 2007 the Act on canonic communication between the Russian Orthodox Church and Russian Orthodox Overseas Church was signed, which brought to light new questions. The authors stress that today Indonesia is the only South-East Asian country where Orthodox propagation is successfully developing and the making of national Orthodox Church is under way. As a result of a December 2007 visit and meetings of the Moscow Patriarchy clergy and Archbishop of Sidney and Australia and New-Zeeland Illarion it was decided to add to charter of the organization «Indonesian Orthodox Church», which is officially registered by Indonesian government, the notion that the said structure is under canonic authority of the Russian Orthodox Church Moscow Patriarchy. At the same time there are problems because there are three church structures functioning in Indonesia. The authors discuss the prospects for a united Orthodox Church of Indonesia.

Dr. Anatoly Sokolov's paper is devoted to a practically new problem for the Russian Orientalistics - the literature of Vietnamese Diaspora. Today over 3 million Vietnamese live outside their historical motherland - in more than 90 countries. The author analyses different waves of Vietnamese emigration, revealing their historical and political characteristics. The main attention is paid to the Vietnamese Diaspora in the US as the most numerous and economically mighty one. This very country is the centre of the Vietnamese literature abroad. It is here that a lot of newspapers and magazines in Vietnamese are issued, radio and TV channels are functioning and many publishing houses are working. This paper considers in detail the chronology of Vietnamese literature in alien linguistic setting, with each stage of its development being analyzed, the literary work of some of more prominent writers being covered, literary directions and trends being outlined. The author arrives at a general conclusion that the only choice for the Vietnamese overseas literature is either to integrate into the readers community in their historical motherland (if the author writes in the Vietnamese) or - into the readers community in their new country (for those writing in English, French, German and other languages).

Dr. Vyacheslav Urlyapov analyses trends and outcome of the political process in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste beyond independence. In the state much of the political energy of the first four years of independence was concentrated on putting basic democratic institutions in place. These institutions were of vital importance for the functioning of the national economy. But the period after April 2006 was characterized by extensive turmoil. The normal political process ceased to function and street violence took over as the main expression of divergent viewpoints. The trigger was discontent among parts of the armed forces and national police. It was also related to the successively deepening rift between the president, Xanana Gusmao, and the prime minister, Mari Alkatiri. Now Timor-Leste has entered a new political phase with contents largely unknown.

Dr. Vladimir Tyurin in his paper «Emergency in the history of Malaysia» states that the 12-year-period in the history of Malaya - since 18 June 1948 till 31 June 1960- came into everyday language as The Emergency and later this term was accepted by research and media publications. In the narrow sense this word refers to the armed guerilla war, waged by the Communist Party of Malaya against the British colonizers. But, on the other hand, «The Emergency» influenced all aspects of life in Malaya (and to a great extent in Singapore) - economic, social, political, national, it was also connected with the system of international relations and the pace and ways of the country's gaining independence and choice of ideology. In this respect this term could hardly be attributed only to armed confrontation between the British army and the police on one side and communist guerillas, - on the other. The causes of «The Emergency» are still the subject of discussions. Partisan approach gave way to more balanced analyses.

Dr. Stanislav Byliniak in his paper entitled The countries of South-East Asia: economic development before and after the crisis states that it took some time to overcome the after-effects of the financial crisis in the region, the peak of which fell on 1997-1998. But evidently 2003-2004 could be considered as a starting point of active post-crisis development. Many economists believe that post-crisis development of South-East Asian countries is going on quite successfully. But a number of analysts express certain doubts as for this. Indeed, as it easy to see the average rates of growth of practically all the South-East Asian countries fell. The corresponding data is provided in this paper. Moreover economic development is going unevenly accompanied by production slowing down. In this connection it is appropriate to put a question - is it accidental or is it a sign of changed reproduction conditions. The author attempts to answer this question. The paper also covers the specific features of economic development of certain South-East Asian countries last years.
