Is "in the center of the discussion" a correct term?

---------------------------

Asian countries are *in the center of the discussion*. As we know, Asian countries with a population of 60% from total world, currently contribute to 20% of world oil demand. Naturally, huge potential of oil demand increase should come from Asia.

    It doesn't sound very good in the sentence. Perhaps something like, "Asian countries are in the midst of the debate" or "Asian countries are AT the center of the discussion".

    Yes, "in the center of the discussion" can be a correct term, but not when it is overly vague, as it is in the example paragraph.

    Is the discussion ABOUT Asian countries?

    or

    Is the discussion BY Asian countries?
