China and Indochina can consider pushing ahead with the Mekong Community.

On China's side it doesn't always have to be China in the lead and it doesn't always have to have Chinese characteristics in this case. As a team some will be slow and some will be fast. It is about accepting the other's behavior. There will be pluses in other areas. This is what makes teams great. Adopting just the word "Mekong" for branding indicates how important China places the Indochinese neighbors amongst the Chinese. Its not like when the brand is "Mekong", China's industries will lose their identity and prowess. In fact it marks confidence. Chinese entrepreneurs are unlikely to stop seeking technological prowess to compete globally. This desire can be instilled regardless of the name used. Also too much Chinese brand makes it boring and stale globally. Its good to empower China's neighbours and let them lead as they may lead to new paths which can benefit China indirectly. Its always about shaping mindsets. The quality of Indochinese need to be alleviated to surpass other East Asians so that they can influence the region. Of course there are those anti-Chinese who will try to discredit China but this will make excellent practises for China to counter ill-intended profiling. Language then becomes the important bridge for convergence. It is good to encourage the Indochinese to master their own national/cultural language, Mandarin and English with the latter 2 being global, technology and business languages.

Shaping Cambodia and Laos after Hong Kong's economic prowess minus HK's social culture but installed with their own local culture will be good for diversity, creativity and innovation. If these people are still in the backwater, then this creates good opportunity for outsiders to leverage on that to destabilize the Mekong Community. Getting the people to be aware of cross-border-behaviour and culture will be of paramount importance. Back Cambodia's and Laos' financial and legal economies up with greenery that is with forest, agriculture and aquaculture. This will help them become uniquely different from others which will alleviate their people's feel - and China is part of them. That to receive is also to give. Chinese should understand this.

Linking up the education mechanism of China with the Indochinese to foster stronger relationship helps. Indochinese institutes will have access to higher knowledge on par with the Chinese while Chinese institutions can widen their study to cover these neighbours. Every place has its own unique geological attributes. Enhance student exchanges. By offering others knowledge is a step in the direction of compassion. Without compassion the people-to-people relationship cannot hold. With healthy competition, this will push everyone, China included,  to try to be ahead and its okay if others go ahead too. The idea is the area for harnessing knowledge has become greater for everyone in the Mekong Community.

With a dynamic region, this will attract attention as well as businesses of course some unnecessary problems and troubles too. Be realistic. Don't be too greedy though. be happy with what you have and there is no need to enlarge the membership. Staying vigilant is a must. Of course the same peaceful formula can be applied with Indonesia and Philippines too under the East Asian Community or Central Asians for the matter.

Should be a good partnership.

You must have meant that in a sarcastic way…

Most times when speaking about China.
