The region of Asia and the Pacific nowadays concentrates the biggest part of the population and world trade, and is the main international scenario where there are conflicts and challenges on a global level.

Asia's contribution to the creation of new middle class, the implementation of new social use of technology, high growth rates of their economies, global flow of Asian tourists, consolidation of Asian origin new multinationals, channeling of global trade from and towards Asia, the influence of the new cultural waves from East Asia, establishment of gastronomy in the European diet, greatest participation in the world geopolitical scenario… These and other issues imply that an important part of what the "history" of our present will be is taking place now in Asia. 

Correspondents of media in Asia are direct witnesses of this reality because they carry out field work and inform of and from Asia. Nobody better than them can talk first hand about the main events that take place in this part of the world.

They will reply to these questions: What is happening in Asia nowadays? Is there interest in Asia and the Pacific in Spain? What is interesting for the Spanish media about the Asian continent?
