Abstract: In the background of COVID-19, the effective government is particularly important. The Chinese government has responded to this global challenge to the satisfaction of the Chinese people. In contrast, American and European governments look weak and weak compared with those in East Asia. In the post-epidemic era, East Asia has become the world's largest economy. After a comparative analysis of the regional economies in East Asia and other economies, this paper puts forward the construction strategy of the East Asian Economic Community and its practical and strategic significance, and further expounds how China will not repeat the mistakes of the United States when it surpasses the United States to lead the new world order and provide international public goods.
Key words: post-epidemic era; East Asian economic community; economic integration; international public goods
