China’s communist regime has gradually gained more influence at the World Economic Forum in recent years, completing its domination of Davos in 2023.
Chinese Communist Party propagandists this week were quick to make clear that the spirit of the World Economic Forum (WEF), which is held annually in Davos, Switzerland, is made in the image and likeness of the economic and political ideas applied in China.
Despite the fact that over the last few years the influence of China has not stopped rising in Davos, this is the first year that everyone agrees that who dominates the exhibition topics is completely out of the question.
In addition, it is the first year that it is celebrated in person, after China released the coronavirus throughout the world.
This 2023 it became clear that the country that unleashed the Wuhan virus on the rest of the world, lied relentlessly about the disease and acted ruthlessly against anyone who questioned its story, is the one that rules the most important global cooperation forum in the world.
China’s state-run Global Times said on Monday that the WEF, which is being held in person for the first time in three years, “marks that the world economy and people’s social lives are gradually emerging from the shadow of the pandemic”.
“As China’s image and voice at the WEF always attract great global attention, the world is looking forward to China’s constructive role at a time when global economic risks are intensifying,” the article boasted.
The Global Times briefly mentioned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which China has adamantly refused to denounce, as one such global risk factor, but then complained that there are countries that have yet to fall into its clutches.
“The real challenge of our age is that some countries have repeatedly adopted unilateral policies in an attempt to revitalize their own economies by discarding trade based on supporting friends,” say the regime’s propagandists.
In other words, the big problem is that too many countries don’t trust Chinese investment, which has proven time and time again to be the most predatory in the world, and they don’t because Russia is at war with Ukraine; something completely crazy.
Since 1979, China has never missed a Davos Economic Forum, led by socialist Klaus Schwab.
While this forum was once one of the largest promoters of free markets in the world, today it works to install regimes that are democratic at their façade, but socialist and authoritarian at their core.
At this year’s World Economic Forum, however, China had to draw full force from its propaganda, since for the first time in the last 50 years, it has had poor economic growth and has left behind that “Chinese miracle” that so many times it was exhibited in Davos.
In another Global Times article, the US and Japan were howled for daring to work together on space exploration because the deal was allegedly infested with an “underlying anti-China color”, which was brought up in several WEF panels.
The Chinese newspaper briefly complained that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken described China as the “greatest shared strategic challenge” between Washington and Tokyo”, but what really angered the Global Times was the new policy of Japan’s defense under Prime Minister Kishida Fumio, including closer cooperation with the United States and the largest military escalation in the Pacific since World War II.
“Japan should avoid becoming America’s lackey in space, and should abandon the idea of playing the ‘sharp spear’ role in the Pacific, as it would go against post-war promises and damage the delicate confidence of its Asian neighbours, creating chaos and turbulence in the Asia-Pacific region”, sentenced the Global Times, with a strong speech that in another time would not have taken place in Davos.
