本文讲的是政客和经济学家的利益偏见，政治因素和经济学家对这个项目表现出极大的兴趣，他们只关注自己的优势，而不是考虑社会福利和环境的可持续性(Zivet al, 2012)。政客和经济学家的这种偏见利益，正使冲突变得更加严重。评估湄公河水电项目的经济潜力、对周边走廊的经济影响和区域发展具有重要意义。该项目可能对某些政治团体有利，但也可能对其他团体产生不利影响。因此，不同的政府对这个项目有不同的立场。然而，我们有必要仅仅关注人们的福利和可持续的生态系统来研究这个问题。本篇代写论文价格文章由英国论文通AssignmentPass辅导网整理，供大家参考阅读。
The political elements and economists are showing vibrant interest in the project focusing their mere advantages rather than considering welfare of society and sustainability of environment (Zivet al, 2012). This biased interest of politicians and economists is making the conflict much worsen. It is important to evaluate economic potential of the Mekong River hydropower project, its economic effects on the neighbouring corridors, and regional development. The project might be beneficial for certain political groups while it may affect adversely to others. Therefore varying governments have varying stance on this project. However, it is necessary to look into the matter with mere concern about people’s welfare and sustainable ecosystem.
There is a region in South China Sea which has been under a grand dispute among many countries. The ownership and sovereignty of that sea region is claimed by Malaysia, China, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan. As a number of countries are involved in this dispute, it has become major concern internationally (Arsana, 2014; Barlow, 2010). On international platform, the issue of ownership of this portion is affecting the unity and political relations of various other countries (Buszynski, 2003). Moreover, this dispute is likely to weaken the power of ASEAN as its members do not unite on a platform themselves (Fravel, 2011).
The above discussed conflicts are creating massive political and economic turbulence in Southeast Asia and consequently affecting international economy and relations with other countries.

Settlement of differences or disputes by peaceful manner;
