EDITORIAL INTRALOGISTICS & DISTRIBUTION Publisher: Dipl.-Ing. Reiner Wesselowski (We) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Globalization made in China At the Asian regional forum in Boao, Zhon Wenzhong, General Secretary of China’s counterpart to the Davos World Economic Forum, warned that globalization is in a critical phase. Chinese head of state and party leader Xi Dingping had already pointed to dark clouds for free world trade in his speech at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. This could give the impression that in the Trump era of economic nationalism, China is rushing to the aid of the open global economic system. But the role assigned to the Middle Kingdom in concert with the global economy as presented by China’s elite in Boao and Davos is not very credible. That’s also what the Mercator Institute for China Studies (Merics) thinks. According to the institute, complaints about lack of market access for foreign investors have actually continued to increase in the recent past. The Chinese initiative for a “New Silk Road” also forms part of this picture. Russian President Vladimir Putin and other heads of state and party leaders met at the Silk Road Summit May 15 and 16 in Beijing. The agenda of the meeting included a presentation of details of that initiative. In specific terms it has to do with traffic routes from Asia to Europe and similar ventures – financed with Chinese billions and built by Chinese companies. This is globalization made in China – open markets, but only when it works to China’s own advantage. Winfried Bauer Editor-in-chief (email@example.com) Editor-in-chief: Dipl.-Ing.
