The Communist Party of China (CCP) plays a central role in foreign policy making in China. This is hardly surprising. It is, after all, the key strategic decision-making body in the People’s Republic. The fact that, as a result of its huge economy, the country the CCP has political stewardship over also has an increasingly important geopolitical role means, by default, that so does the CCP.
The MED This Week newsletter provides expert analysis and informed insights on the most significant developments in the MENA region, bringing together unique opinions on the topic and reliable foresight on future scenarios. Today, we focus on the second Berlin Conference, where twenty-one representatives of national governments and international institutions with vested interests in the Libyan crisis agreed to push for a prompt withdrawal of foreign fighters from the country and stressed their endorsement for national elections in December.
Africa is endowed with abundant renewable energies. The continent has the world’s richest solar resources due to its high irradiation. It also benefits from crucial wind potential – especially in North and East Africa – and hydropower, which currently make up two of its main renewable sources due to its major river basins. Moreover, geothermal resources can be found throughout Africa, although the bulk of the potential is concentrated in the East Africa Rift System.
Oggi, 21 giugno, si svolgerà in Etiopia la tornata elettorale per il rinnovo delle assemblee federali e regionali e delle principali municipalità. Lo scrutinio non coprirà l’intero territorio nazionale: nel Tigrai e in parte dell’Oromia, del Benishangul e nel sud l’esecutivo ha disposto il rinvio del voto a data da destinarsi, complice il perdurare dei conflitti e le difficoltà nell’assicurare la registrazione degli elettori.
La crisi seguita all’esplosione della pandemia da COVID-19 ha prodotto un impatto fortissimo sulle economie e i mercati del lavoro in tutto il mondo. In un anno, il numero di ore lavorate a livello globale è diminuito dell’8,8%, equivalente alla perdita di 255 milioni di posti di lavoro a tempo pieno. Di fatto, circa la metà di questi posti di lavoro sono stati effettivamente persi, mentre il gap restante equivale ad ore lavorate in meno tra persone che hanno comunque mantenuto il loro posto di lavoro.
Both the G7 and the G20 summit platforms arose from responses to economic and financial challenges. As a result, finance ministers have a dominant role in both the discussion and the discourse among leaders of the major economies. The Covid-19 crisis has broadened the agenda of both groups of leading countries, along with urgency of climate change and the imperative of dealing with systemic social inequalities revealed by the pandemic.
G7 leaders gather in Cornwall on June 11-13 for their most important summit since the start in 1975. They will produce a strong success, perhaps the strongest of all time.
President Biden, with a strong foreign policy portfolio and a meager record on domestic policy during his half century-long career as a public servant, seems more eager to capitalize on his art of global diplomacy and reclaim US leadership based on securing American dominance in the Indo-Pacific than putting his own house in order. One is left with the impression that he has been brushing many domestic problems aside in a rush to push and grab the gavel of global leadership, which Trump abandoned.
From inaction to action – that is the message that the 2021 G7 summit seems to be more than willing to get across. And, indeed, things appear to be moving fast: from bolder commitments on climate change to the recent announcement of a global corporate tax, from redoubled promises to help vaccinating the world to foreign policy coordination.
