Dr. Aida Simoniya examines new priorities of Myanmar's foreign policy since Myanmar has faced mounting diplomatic pressure from the international community after the renewed detention of Aung San Suu Kyi in May 2003. The author assessed how the regime has been able to take advantage of the economic, security and geostrategic interests of both China and India in the country to achieve developmental and security goals. As USA and other western countries have sought to place Myanmar under the scrutiny of the UN Security Council on the grounds that its domestic circumstances have regional security implications, the paper highlights how its relations with Beijing and Moscow have assumed ever greater significance.

Dr. Anatoly Sokolov in his paper «Vietnamese culture in a market society and in time of globalization» stresses the changing context of Vietnamese culture development and functioning with the state still continuing to control cultural product, both local and foreign. Cultural exchange and advent of foreign, mainly mass culture tends to expand, including international theatre and cinema festivals, foreign musicians' performances, translation of literary works and so on. English is more widely used as well as Internet as a means of communication, electronic mass media and «a new literary environment». Modern Vietnamese literature is characterized by multiple trends from formalistic experiments to the rise of mass literature. Indigenous literature as a whole evolves towards the tastes of mass consumer. Fewer production at the state film studios goes along with the rise of production at private film studios and with joint cinema production with foreigners including Vietnamese йmigrйs. TV retains its leading role as the main source of information and inspiration of cultural life. Commercialization of musical industry and fine arts (especially picture-galleries' business) demonstrates the trend to consumerism and entertainment in culture. Rapid expansion of tourism (international as well as domestic) which is growing to be one of the country's leading industry, demonstrates the scale of Vietnam's involvement in the process of globalization.

Dr. Vyacheslav Urlyapov in his article describes the main aspects of a domestic developments in Malaysia. The author writes that a decade after the Asian financial crisis, Malaysia's economy is at its best shape. The last few years have shown a significant strengthening of economic fundamentals with the government's move to improve competitiveness and to narrow budget deficit. Annual GDP growth hovered in the 6 per cent range in 2006. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi launched the country's Third Industrial Master Plan. It targets a 6.3 per cent average economic growth in the next 15 years. Nevertheless, not all is quiet on the domestic front. Malaysia has come into a rough time with deteriorating race relations between its majority ethnic Malays and minority Chinese and Indians. Half a century into nationhood the idea of a Bangsa Malaysia - a blended Malaysian race that was to have climbed out of the melting pot - is still nowhere in sight. Abdullah Badawi admitted that the major races were drifting further apart because of racial and religious divisions and built-in discrimination. Besides, a sharp row has emerged between Prime Minister and Mahathir Mohamad, the former country's leader. Malaysia's public has been dismayed by the spectacle of a elder statesman turned chief opposition leader.

In Dr. Mikhail Gusev's article it is stated that violence has become a constant factor of political process in South East Asia. At the same time the author underlines that this doesn't mean that the ideas of militant Islamic extremism are generally accepted everywhere in the region. It is sooner on the contrary - the majority of Muslim population of the region are the followers of moderate Islam. Although the balance of forces is in favour of the latter, the active minority which advocates extremist methods could in some cases tilt the balance to unpredictable direction, profiteering by some social and economic problems of the region.
