In China, a historic event has been going on since the beginning of the Olympic Games in 2008: it is richer, more armed and more aggressively aggressive.

President Xi Jinping’s government is preparing for the Invertebrate Olympics, in February, but will be able to exert influence on the outside world and resist complaints from the United States and other governments in relation to issues such as trade and trade. dado in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and as minor Muslims in China.

The economy today is very much higher. The Communist Party is using this richness to turn a “technological potential”, and invests but in its armed forces that other countries, for example the United States.

“2008 was a turning point,” said Jean-Pierre Cabestan, a specialist in Chinese politics at the Hong Kong University of Batista. “It’s the beginning of China’s assertiveness.”

Due to the explosion of artifacts on Pequim in August 2008, China was able to outperform Japan as the second global economy. The game will not be commemorated with the Olympic Games but we have them today.

A striking move appealed to the event of a “revelation party” of China, held at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, which symbolized the Japanese recovery after the Second World War. After three decades of trying to concentrate on developing prosperity, we are ready to emerge in a global scenario as a political and economic force.

The Communist Party affirmed this post as its most assertive post in 2012, or as Xi chegou a poder, num document that pleaded “more strategic goals”, higher military status and a more relevant global papel.

The government of Xi considers that its single party system is so amusing, and Washington is accusing it of trying to make China its legitimate global leader. The Party is stepping up its control over society and its businesses using filters on the Internet and other types of censorship to block strangers who are prejudicial. It is only to intimidate Taiwan, to an island democracy that Pequim intends to belong to China.

“It may be perceived that China is forced to face the United States and its allies like Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom,” said Shi Yinhong, professor of international relations at Renmin University and Pequim.

Xi is trying to consolidate its control over the country. It is hoped that it will use political meetings at the end of 2022 to try to break with tradition and continue to power by a third term of five years as President of the Party. At the same time, it promoted a change to the Chinese Constitution in order to reduce the number of seats in the presidential cargo.

Antes “but aberta to the outside world”, in China currently is “very more paranoid”, according to Cabestan.

Pequim vem sending war planes at number each major to your nearest Taiwan. The country is in the throes of a failure in terms of nuclear capacity that we could have in the United States, and we will be able to reach out to others, and we will be able to extend military alliances to all of our territorial limits.

China’s accredited leaders, Shi’s, who are defending themselves on various fronts: a tariff war that was launched under President Donald Trump in 2018; restrictions on access to American technology; and military alliances involving Japan, Australia and other governments to combat Pequim’s indications in the Mediterranean Sea and other territories.

“If there is a relationship between China and another country is spacious, it is because of another prejudicial country in China”, explains Shi.

In 2008, the preparations for the Olympic Games included a reform of US $ 43 billion (R $ 230 billion) in Pequim. The Party built the Ninho de Passaro stadium and other Olympic installations, created metro lines and built-up areas. Gynecological equipment was installed in thousands of public parks throughout the country.

A capital, one of the most polluted cities in the world, launched a “blue azul” campaign that uses or substitutes for energy, energy surgeries, other installations, and tax restrictions on traffic with an estimated cost of US $ 10 bills .

Currently, the government of Xi is fighting against divisions, pollution, and other excesses of previous years. It is also in the midst of a campaign, launched before the end of its term of office, in order to lead the economy to sustainable sustainable reading in the domestic consumer market, to export and investment markets.

Under the auspices of an impressive government initiative – which received the name of “prosperity as” from a slogan of 1950 – the Party is tending to reduce wealth inequality, volatile politics, between a billionaire elite or a Chinese working class major.

Bem-sucedidas companies of private e-commerce and other settlements are under pressure to invest in the Party to reduce dependence on the United States, Europe and Japan as technology suppliers through more than the development of computer chips and other products. They are responsible for the creation of rare jobs and other policy initiatives.

These other leaflets promise to open but also markets for foreign and private competitors, at the same time as declaring banks, petroleum companies, telecommunications operators and other state-owned companies such as the “economic nucleus”. Business groups advertise that, despite the fact that some companies are pushing the limits of strangulation in automobile manufacturing, multinational companies are sending out technology promoters and other areas.

“China will continue to expand its open space to the outside world,” Xi said in a speech directed at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on January 17. He promised to “make sure that everyone who works for them has the same status and has the opportunity to play”.

Xi deu an alfinetada in Washington to advertise “hegemonic bullying”, and said that governments precisely “abandon the mentality of the Free War”.

At the moment, when athletes and journalists come to watch the opening of the Inverno Games on February 4, the Chinese leaders are just trying to solve the economic crisis that is happening at the same time as trying to break it down. the civil construction set, responsible for millions of jobs, has reduced its consideration considered high on Pequim.

China is recovering rapidly from the 2020 pandemic, and is turning into a major economic economy in recent years. Our increase will be reduced abruptly by the end of 2021, when the government’s efforts to counteract the disenfranchisement will continue to lead to sales and civil construction.

The economy grew by a robust percentage of 8.1% in 2021, but growth increased last quarter to 4% relative to the previous year. Analysts say that what is happening is that there will be reductions in the tax rate and other measures that will make it effective. The World Bank and private sector economists have reduced their forecast forecasts for this year by up to 5%, while this could still be considered one of the strongest in the world.

“Economic stability is the main focus of 2022,” said Tommy Wu of Oxford Economics.
