One of the realities of the current century is the existence of different regimes and organizations for cooperation between countries in thematic areas. This has grown dramatically, especially after the Cold War, as the number of established regimes is abundant connected the world as a network of communication texture. China is among the emerging countries. It has been able to make its second economy in the world for two to three decades. The main question here is why China has created regimes in East Asia. Using this explanatory method, interest and maximizing interests are the main motivations for China to create regional regimes, and it is argued that China is seeking economic incentives to develop regimes in order to consolidate its position. In this regard, China have supported or formed ASEAN+3, China-ASEAN Free Trade Area, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and the Belt and Road Initiative. The proposed approach in this study is interest-based regimes and the compilation method of materials by library and documentary.
