TOKYO -- China's Asian neighbors welcome Beijing's economic rise but are losing confidence in the leadership of the region's biggest economy, a multinational survey published Friday showed.

Forty-five percent of respondents in six Asia-Pacific nations -- Australia, Indonesia, India, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea -- said they do not have confidence in Chinese President Xi Jinping's policies, according to the survey by the Washington-based Pew Research Center. This compares with 29% who have confidence in Xi.
