South Asia is a region with a high level of conflict. Disputes in the region are still a focus for the international community to resolve. Afghanistan is a country that stands in the South Asia region. The country's urgency has been apparent since the fall of the Ashraf Ghani government to the Taliban. Additionally, the withdrawal of foreign troops, including the United States, Britain, and their allies, has worsened the situation in the country. In this case, the Tunxi meeting tried to communicate with the parties interested in the matter. The Tunxi initiative was undertaken as a bridge to break the communication deadlock of the disputing parties. China led this meeting so that Afghanistan could rise again through economic reconstruction and practical cooperation in Afghanistan. Economic diplomacy is an analytical tool to see China's efforts in developing Afghanistan. The method used is qualitative to provide a clear explanation and more developed research exploration. As a result, China always uses the approach of being a mediating actor in every conflict so that the country can be accepted in almost all world countries. This provides excellent opportunities and benefits for China in securing its economy.
