Economic development

Due to the Asian specialization of our Centre, many of our publications are linked more or less directly to the issue of development. In fact, how could one speak about modern Asia without mentioning the tremendous development and growth trends that have taken place on the continent since the 1950s? The many aspects of this issue are the focus of some of our work. What are the levers and engines of development in the region? And within the BRICS? What roles have agricultural, industrial and services development played within the overall development process in Asian countries? What are today the developed and the emerging powers in Asia? Who will be the next Japan, the next Korea, the next China? Which Asian countries will be able to integrate environmental considerations into their development plans, to ensure sustainable growth and development?

Foreign investment in China fell 7.81 billion in July, falling to their lowest level since 2011. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce ensure that this decrease has no connection with the antitrust investigations launched by China against foreign-owned enterprises, such as Audi (German) or Chrysler (American), recognized both guilty of "monopolistic practices".
