64 miliardi di dollari americani sono una gran bella cifra, e si tenga conto che saranno impiegati in infrastrutture.  Sicuramente il finanziamento rappresenterà un debito, ma i debiti contratti per costruire infrastrutture sono ammortizzabili, perché produttivi.

Germania e Francia non partecipano, anche se hanno qualche collaborazione in essere. Specie la Germania di Frau Merkel è fortemente prevenuta.

«the lack of environmental compatibility, for example, of coal or hydroelectric power plants»

«Germany is skeptical of the Chinese prestige project – as well as other large EU states»

«One allegation is that China does not comply with social, environmental and human rights standards»

«It is also criticized that it would be mainly Chinese state companies in the construction of bridges or roads to train»

«The initiative, which is supposed to connect, should not be a one-way street, demands German industry»

Queste frasi sembrerebbero spiegare molto bene la situazione.

La Germania di Frau Merkel non è disponibile a trattare con la Cina, la quale, a suo modo di vedere, non rispetterebbe gli standard tedeschi sociali, ambientalistici e di visione dei diritti umani. E questo Frau Merkel lo dice chiaramente ad alta voce.

Poi i tedeschi si stupiscono di essere stati tagliati fuori dal giro.

Le persone che prendono a pesci in faccia non li ringraziamo, riverenti.

Che poi, se riguardassero meglio le offerte che hanno fatto, presentavano costi tre volte maggiori di quelli prospettati delle imprese cinesi.

Una sola, ultima considerazione.

Mr Conte ha fatto quello che avrebbero dovuto fare i suoi predecessori, che non ne furono all’altezza: portare a casa solidi contratti e denaro fresco che genererà lavoro.

International News. 2019-04-27. Beijing Summit: Conference on the Silk Road ends with billionaire contracts

For three days, almost 40 heads of state and government from around the world had met in the Chinese capital and talked about the next phase of the so-called New Silk Road. ….

Critics warn that financially vulnerable countries may be in debt trap and growing dependency on China. Sri Lanka, for example, was unable to repay its debt to Beijing, leaving China in control of a deep water port for 99 years. Another point of criticism is the lack of environmental compatibility, for example, of coal or hydroelectric power plants. ….

Germany is skeptical of the Chinese prestige project – as well as other large EU states. One allegation is that China does not comply with social, environmental and human rights standards. It is also criticized that it would be mainly Chinese state companies in the construction of bridges or roads to train. The initiative, which is supposed to connect, should not be a one-way street, demands German industry. ….

Among the participants in the meeting were Russian President Vladimir Putin, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. As the only country in the group of the seven leading industrialized nations (G7), Italy has formally declared its readiness to participate in the project.»
