The emerging land connections between Mekong states, and between  the Mekong states and China, are significant, and historically  unprecedented. Mainland Southeast Asia – the Mekong region - comprises Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.4 Like  Southeast Asia writ large, it is between China on the one hand, and  external powers United States, Japan, India, and Australia on the other.  Historically this has mattered. During the Second World War, Japanese  troops landed first in Thailand and moved down the peninsula to take  Malaysia and Singapore. In the Cold War, the United States feared a  succession of falling Southeast Asian dominoes as communism spread  southward. 

Since the 1990s, Mekong states have made up half of the  Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the regional  organisation struggling, as geopolitical competition intensifies, to  maintain its role as the ‘strategic convenor’ of the Indo-Pacific region.  The geopolitical alignment of the five ‘Mekong countries’ is thus  politically and strategically important. Both the West and China want  these states neutral, if not aligned. So the question, “whither mainland  Southeast Asia?”, is attracting attention, especially in view of the everincreasing flows of Chinese trade and investment, and the roll-out of  China’s BRI through the Indochina Peninsula.
