¿Cómo ve China a Trump?

LONDRES – La asombrosa victoria de Donald Trump en las elecciones presidenciales de Estados Unidos ha sacudido al mundo. Si se considera desde el notable silencio del presidente mexicano Enrique Peña Nieto hasta la declaración del presidente francés Francois Hollande sobre que se abre un “período de incertidumbre”,  y el embelesamiento  apenas disimulado del Kremlin, se puede afirmar que Trump no ha sido recibido internacionalmente de la misma forma en la que se recibieron a otros presidentes estadounidenses. Sin embargo, un país se ha mantenido, en gran medida, impasible: China.

La postura de Trump sobre China es bien conocida: ha culpado a este país de todo, desde acciones de piratería informática que afectaron a su oponente (acciones que el gobierno de Estados Unidos considera que son el trabajo de Rusia) al cambio climático (que ha calificado como un engaño elaborado por China para socavar la competitividad de  EEUU). Y, ha prometido imponer un arancel del 45% a los productos chinos.

No obstante, la prudencia fluye a través de las venas confucianas de China. En lugar de sacar conclusiones precipitadas sobre las futuras políticas de Estados Unidos, y mucho menos tomar medidas prematuras, los líderes de China han permanecido neutrales en su respuesta frente a la victoria de Trump. Parecen tener confianza de que, a pesar de que la relación bilateral cambiará en algo, no se transformará de manera fundamental. Continuará siendo ni muy buena, ni muy mala.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
