Cina. Adesso è lei ad imporre le sanzioni. Il caso della Australia.

Cina 015 Fiore di loto

La Unione Europea ha imposto dazi e sanzioni ad oltre trenta paesi, rei di non aver condiviso la Weltanschauung liberal socialista e di non aver ammesso l’egemonia dell’Unione. Figuratevi, che non sono omofili!

Poi, magari, come nel caso della Russia, sanzioni e dazi non impediscono certo di fare qualche buon affare, pecunia non olet.

Ma i tempi corrono molto veloci, ed ora la Cina è tornata in piena fase espansiva, per non parlare del Trattato Rcep.

Secondo lo International Monetary Fund World Economic Outlook, le proiezioni al 2022 danno la Cina ad un pil ppa di 34,465 (20.54%) miliardi di Usd, gli Stati Uniti di 23,505 (14.01%), e l’India di 15,262 (9.10%) Usd. Seguono Giappone con 6,163 (3.67%),  Germania (4.932%), Regno Unito 3,456 (2.06%), Francia 3,427 (2.04%), Italia 2,677 (1.60%). Russia 4.771 (2.84%) e Brasile 3,915 (2.33%).

I paesi del G7 produrranno 46,293 (27.59%) mld Usd del pil mondiale, mentre i paesi del Brics renderanno conto di 59,331 mld Usd (35.36%).

La Cina è diventata il principale blocco economico a livello mondiale.

L’Australia per anni ha criticato aspramente la Cina per come questa gestirebbe le sue questioni interne, e la pazienza dei cinesi sembrerebbe essersi esaurita.

Orbene.

Mentre la Cina può comprare in altre parti del mondo i beni che prima importava dall’Australia, l’Australia si trova ora con il proprio export falcidiato e ciò accade in un periodo di stasi dei commerci internazionali.

Verosimilmente, gli australiani saranno obbligati a cambiare comportamento dalla realtà dei fatti: loro contano ben poco, mentre la Cina conta molto. Piaccia o meno.

Adesso le sanzioni ed i dazi li impone la Cina.

Non si sputa nel piatto ove si mangia.

China says its importers choosing voluntarily to cut back on Australian goods.

China said on Tuesday reduced imports of Australian products like wine, coal and sugar were the result of buyers’ own decisions, after media said Beijing had told importers to stop buying a range of Australian goods amid a deterioration in ties.

The Australian Financial Review, citing unnamed sources, said on Monday Chinese officials met food and wine importers last week and warned them not to make new orders for Australian wine and farm products.

The South China Morning Post, citing sources, said China was expected to block imports of sugar, red wine, lobster, barley, coal and copper ore and concentrates from Australia.

It said a ban on wheat was likely to follow, although a date had not yet been set. Reuters could not independently confirm the reports.

Asked whether the government had instructed importers to stop buying Australian products, China’s Foreign Ministry told Reuters: “Relevant companies reducing imports of relevant products from Australia are acting on their own initiative.”

China last week started new customs inspections on Australian lobster, halted imports of timber from northeastern Queensland state, and banned barley shipments from grain exporter Emerald Grain amid a deterioration in ties between the two countries that has already hurt trade in other farm goods.

“Whilst we shouldn’t jump to conclusions, we are working closely with the various industries who have been the subject of these reports,” Australian Trade Minister Simon Birmingham said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We also continue to make enquiries with Chinese authorities to seek clarity and to encourage them to address areas of concern.”

China said on Monday that its halt on timber imports from Australia came after it found pests in several earlier shipments, while inspections on lobster were aimed at guaranteeing food safety.
