Principales  acciones Y decisiones de China relacionadas a la geopolítica y geo economía

Principales  acciones Y decisiones de China relacionadas a la geopolítica y geo economía

Semana del 16 al 22 de Octubre, 2021

  • En materia de Política Exterior, China volvió está semana a reivindicar sus derechos en el Mar de China Meridional, en medio de un nuevo reclamo de Filipinas contra China por sus actividades en una zona económica exclusiva filipina rica en recursos estratégicos, según informa ABS-CBN, una compañía privada de radiodifusión que opera en Filipinas.

  • También relacionado a Asia Pacífico, China instó a países insulares del Pacífico a unir fuerzas para frenar los intentos de la alianza militar AUKUS, conformada por Australia, Reino Unido y Estados Unidos, para contrarrestar las intenciones de China en el Pacífico Sur, asegura Telesur, cadena informativa multiestatal latinoamericana, con sede central en Venezuela.

  • China condenó, por otro lado, a la Unión Europea por votar en su Parlamento a favor de aumentar los lazos con Taiwán y comenzar a trabajar en un acuerdo de inversión con la isla, según RT cadena informativa internacional de origen ruso, con sede en Moscú. La UE había llegado a un acuerdo de inversión con China, pero fue puesto en stand-by, tras un empeoramiento de las relaciones entre ambos.

  • En materia de Conectividad, las dos acciones destacadas de China de esta semana estuvieron relacionadas con el proyecto estratégico de la Franja y Ruta de la Seda, impulsado por China, para alcanzar sus objetivos geopolíticos y geoeconómicos a nivel regional y global. 

  • En primer lugar, China firmó documentos de cooperación relacionados al BRI con 10 países insulares del Pacífico, elevando la asociación estratégica integral que conllevan a un nuevo nivel, según informó RNZ,  radio de servicio público de Nueva Zelanda.

  • En segundo lugar, China anunció que trabajará con Arabia Saudita “para sinergizar aún más la Iniciativa” y “participar activamente” en los principales proyectos de desarrollo del país, informa Anadolu Agency, agencia de prensa del gobierno turco.

  • En el rubro Energía, esta semana una de las principales compañías de petróleo en la República Popular de China, Sinopec, firmó, en medio de la crisis energética que afecta a China, un acuerdo con un desarrollador estadounidense de gas natural licuado, que duplicará las importaciones chinas de GNL desde Estados Unidos, indica la publicación británica especializada en Energía, Energy Voice. En los últimos tres años, los nuevos acuerdos de GNL entre las dos grandes potencias se habían congelado, por las crecientes tensiones políticas entre ambos países acontecidas durante la administración Trump.

  • También esta semana, China firmó un acuerdo con Rusia que impulsará el comercio bilateral de productos energéticos, incluidos el gas licuado de petróleo y el gas natural, según Global Times, diario chino que corresponde al Partido Comunista Chino.

  • En Política interna, lo destacado fue el intento de China de reforzar su control sobre Macao, como parte de un plan para recuperar su influencia sobre la sociedad y las empresas de todo el país, informa el diario de New Lens, perteneciente a Key Commentary Media Group, medio con sede en Taiwán, Hong Kong y Macao. Macao, como Hong Kong, es una “región administrativa especial” de China, que supone un alto grado de autonomía en el marco de “un país, dos sistemas”.

China’s main actions and Decisions related to geopolitics and geo economy

China’s main actions and Decisions related to geopolitics and geo economy

Week of October 16-22, 2021

  • On foreign policy, China returned this week to claim its rights in the South China Sea, amid a new claim by the Philippines against China for its activities in a Philippine exclusive economic zone rich in strategic resources, according to ABS-CBN, a private broadcasting company operating in the Philippines.

  • Also related to Asia Pacific, China urged Pacific island countries to join forces to stop the attempts of the AUKUS military alliance, made up of Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States, to counter China’s intentions in the South Pacific, Telesur said, a. Latin American multistate news channel, headquartered in Venezuela.

  • China condemned, on the other hand, the European Union for voting in its Parliament in favor of increasing ties with Taiwan and beginning to work on an investment agreement with the island, according to RT, the Moscow-based international news network. The EU had reached an investment agreement with China, but it was put on stand-by.

  • In terms of Connectivity, the two outstanding actions of China this week were related to the strategic project of the Belt and Road, promoted by China, to achieve its geopolitical and geoeconomic objectives at the regional and global levels.

  • First, China signed BRI-related cooperation documents with 10 Pacific island countries, elevating the comprehensive strategic partnership they carry to a new level, according to RNZ, New Zealand’s public service radio.

  • Second, China announced that it will work with Saudi Arabia “to further synergize the Initiative” and “actively participate” in the country’s major development projects, reports Anadolu Agency, the Turkish government’s press agency.

  • In the Energy sector, this week one of the main oil companies in the People’s Republic of China, Sinopec, signed, amid the energy crisis affecting China, an agreement with a US developer of liquefied natural gas, which will double the Chinese imports of LNG from the United States, indicates the British publication specialized in Energy, Energy Voice. In the last three years, the new LNG agreements between the two great powers had been frozen, due to the growing political tensions between the two countries that occurred during the Trump administration.

  • Also this week, China signed an agreement with Russia that will boost bilateral trade in energy products, including liquefied petroleum gas and natural gas, according to the Global Times, a Chinese daily owned by the Chinese Communist Party.

  • In Domestic Policy, the highlight was China’s attempt to tighten its grip on Macau, as part of a plan to regain its influence over society and businesses across the country, reports the New Lens daily, owned by Key Commentary Media Group, a media based in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao. Macao, like Hong Kong, is a “special administrative region” of China, assuming a high degree of autonomy within the framework of “one country, two systems”.

China to combine three state companies for rare-earths giant | Source: China Economic Review

China has announced plans to restructure three rare-earths producers into a state-owned company controlling an almost 70% share of the domestic production quota for the commodities that are essential to making high-tech products. By restructuring the country’s major rare-earth companies, the government seeks to extend control from production to the entire supply chain, including exports. The move comes as the US looks to create an alternate supply chain for rare earths, joining forces with Australia.

China admits Australian coal as energy crisis grows and factories shut down | Source: The New Daily

In a humiliating loss of face, energy-starved China’s ban on Australian coal has been unofficially rescinded as the country grapples with blackouts and shuttered factories. China’s tough talk about punishing Australia did not survive the first of the coming winter’s chills and related economic impact. Already a handful of Australian cargoes waiting outside Chinese ports were allowed to berth and discharge their cargoes.
