La révolution internet de la Chine

PEKIN – Partout dans le monde, l’histoire s’est reproduite. L’adoption d’internet atteint une masse critique, modifie la manière de mener les affaires et crée des marchés de dizaines de milliards de dollars pour les biens et les services numériques – entrainant ainsi une « destruction créative » massive. C’est désormais au tour de la Chine d’en faire l’expérience – mais dans le cas de la Chine, elle s’opère dans un contexte de profondes transformations économiques et d’évolution rapide de la société. Si ces forces devaient entrer en collision, cela pourrait fondamentalement transformer la deuxième économie mondiale.

Avec 632 millions d’utilisateurs, l’internet chinois a déjà produit un secteur technologique puissant, de dynamiques réseaux sociaux, et le plus grand marché mondial d’e-tail. La frénésie des investisseurs globaux autour de l’introduction en bourse du plus gros commerçant en ligne chinois, Alibaba, donne une idée de l’échelle de valeur économique déjà créée.

Mais l’action s’est jusqu’à présent principalement déroulée dans le camp du consommateur. Les secteurs essentiels, de la manufacture à la santé, n’ont pas progressé au-delà des premières phases de l’Internet. En effet, dès 2012, environ un quart des petites et moyennes entreprises ont commencé à utiliser l’internet pour leurs approvisionnements, la vente, et le marketing – ce qui veut dire que le gros reste à venir.

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
