What is the difference between recognize and appreciate? If any Western policy-makers fail to recognize and appreciate this change, they will be greatly disadvantaged in their dealings with Asia and Asians. What is the difference between recognize and appreciate?

In this case, "recognize" means to see, accept, or be aware of something. Just because they recognize the change mentioned, it doesn't mean that they like it or approve of it. But if they "appreciate" the change, they will see the change as a good or positive thing.
