INTERVISTA PARLA IL PRESIDENTE DI MANDARIN II, NEONATO FONDO DI PECHINO PARTECIPATO DALLE BANCHE D'INVESTIMENTO CDB E CITIC

Più antichi sono, meglio funzionano i «guanxi». Le reti di conoscenze, le frequentazioni, i rapporti di fiducia, essenziali per i cinesi, amano un certo grado di stagionatura. Gao Jian trascorse la seconda metà del 1983 a Milano, «studiavo per Finafrica, un programma sponsorizzato dalla Cariplo, esperienza fondamentale». Cattedra a BolognaL'Italia non ha mai smesso di incrociare la sua carriera che lo ha portato alla vicepresidenza della China Development Bank (Cdb), uno dei grandi istituti di credito di Stato, e adesso ritorna in forze due volte. Gao Jian: siete l'alternativa agli Usa, l'Asia ha
bisogno di voi. Problemi? Ci sono ma spariranno
QuisqueCon l'accordo prossimo all'ok definitivo («mancano i dettagli, ma si farà») per una cattedra all'Università di Bologna e, soprattutto, con l'incarico di presidente dell'advisory board del secondo Mandarin Fund: una nuova iniziativa che prosegue l'esperienza del primo fondo, lanciato tra il 2006 e il 2007 e imperniato sui rapporti tra Italia e Cina (Intesa SanPaolo è uno dei tre investitori principali). «Questo Mandarin II guarda alla Germania ma anche ad altri Paesi del Nord Europa e dell'area tedesca. Il modello è lo stesso del primo, fare incontrare le imprese europee che puntano alla Cina e gli investimenti cinesi nella Ue, due dinamiche complementari. E lo strumento del primo Mandarin si è rivelato efficace, con ritorni doppi rispetto all'investimento.

In the eight months since I became China’s Vice Foreign Minister in charge of European affairs, I have paid nearly 10 visits to Europe. During each visit, I witnessed the tremendous efforts made by Europe to cope with the debt crisis, and I am very glad to see that some of these are gradually showing effect.
China has provided firm support to Europe since the outbreak of the crisis. We contributed $43 billion to the IMF, and provided assistance to Europe through purchasing European treasury bonds and increasing imports. In my view, this is what we should do as the EU’s comprehensive strategic partner.
Next year, we will mark the 10th anniversary of the China-EU comprehensive strategic partnership. In spite of vicissitudes in the international landscape in the past decade, China-Europe relations have stayed on an upward track. There have been frequent exchanges between our leaders, leading to enhanced mutual understanding and trust. China-EU trade has quadrupled, and we have also maintained close consultation on climate change and other global issues.
China is a staunch supporter of European integration. It is our consistent view that a united, stable and prosperous Europe is in the interest of the whole world, China included. When the European debt crisis was at its worst, some people propagated the idea of the “EU’s disintegration”. Yet China never changed its view, and remained confident about Europe’s future. As Premier Wen Jiabao said, “China is the EU’s trusted friend.”
Understanding and trust lie at the heart of one of the world’s great strategic partnerships, says China's Vice Foreign Minister
As China moves to a high level in its development, the scope of co-operation between China and Europe will only become broader. There will be increasing demand in China for European products, technology and investment. We need to draw new plans for our co-operation in finance, urbanisation and sustainable development, and explore the possibility of establishing a China-EU free trade area.
At the same time, we need properly to handle our differences and disputes according to the principle of mutual respect, and do all we can to translate the huge potential of co-operation into reality.
A promising future of China-Europe relations requires our joint effort to uphold a peaceful and stable international environment. Both China and Europe went through the havoc of the Second World War and our people were the victims of wars. No one understands the preciousness of peace better than us.
