Quand l’économie planifiée chinoise nous amène à découvrir que les investissements en Europe seront décidés via Bruxelles et Luxembourg, avec un centre de décision très important qui s’implante en Wallonie.

Après avoir encore connu des famines dans les années 60, la Chine donne, avec l’arrivée au pouvoir de Deng Xiaoping, la priorité au développement économique, avec le succès que l’on sait.

En plus clair, les économistes du Parti (Communiste Chinois, en abrégé : PCC), au premier rang desquels Zhou Xiaochuan, l’actuel gouverneur de la People Bank of China étaient devenus réformistes, ce qui signifie qu’ils souhaitaient faire transiter leur pays vers une « économie de marché à l’Occidentale »[1]. Il part bientôt à la retraite, et ceux de sa génération avec lui. Avec son remplaçant, va très probablement naître un tournant de politique.

De 1992 à 1998, l’économie est de moins en moins planifiée. De 1998 à 2003, plusieurs plans sont dérégulés. Le résultat de ces efforts est couronné par l‘entrée de la Chine dans l’OMC, en 2001. On connaît aussi les déséquilibres qu’engendre l’émergence de la Chine.

After experiencing famines in the 1960s, China, with Deng Xiaoping’s coming to power, gave priority to economic development, with the success that we know.

In a nutshell, the party’s economists (Chinese Communist, short for CPC), led by Zhou Xiao Chuan, the current governor of the People Bank of China, had become reformists, meaning that they wanted to move their country towards a “market economy in the West” [1]. He soon retired, and those of his generation with him. With his replacement, a turning point in politics will most likely be born.

From 1992 to 1998, the economy was less and less planned. From 1998 to 2003, several plans were deregulated. The outcome of these efforts culminated in China’s entry into the WTO in 2001. We also know the imbalances engendered by the emergence of China.

Current observation: as long as globalization and its institutions were at the service of a single pole of powers, that is to say, the West, which created them, everything went well.

Today, the new strategy of the two blocs will redraw, if not the world, in any case at least the year 2017: the United States will try to get closer to Russia while with its “new route of silk” (NB: interesting info for those who live in the region, the new route of silk, after having crossed in particular Germany, will end in the form of a dispatching center in … Liège, a Belgian city with a glorious industrial past – and at present shown by the brothers Dardenne – who could well know a serious renewal of this, where do you think Ali-Baba has established his main center for Northern Europe? But will North America not hinder these nascent alliances? Whether you are involved in real estate or logistics in Liège, we are all interested in it and much more closely that it seems).
