教授Rafael Pampillon上海证券报撰文分析中国经济发展给亚洲经济带来的影响。点击查看文章网状区域合作有利于中、亚经济未来“ (Regional collaboration creates goodness for future of China and Asia)
mas small pic of Rafael Pampillon.JPG
全文如下:
中国,亚洲的巨人。高速发展的中国大陆,仿佛是一块磁铁源源不断地吸引着境外投资。
中国经济的崛起是21世纪全球最为引人注目的事件之一。经济蓬勃发展的背后,以下因素不可忽视:一是中国拥有13.5亿的强大人口优势,二是中国居民的高额存款率。随着其对外开放步伐加大,可以想象,未来中国居民所具备的消费潜力必将极大地改变世界经济地图。
众所周知,过去30年中国经济以平均每年GDP超过10%的速度增长。2007年GDP的增长速度达到11.4%,基本符合年初12%的预期——当时这个数据也是在预防经济过热的相关政策出台之后作出的预测。这个由中国国家统计局对外宣布的数据表明,中国这位亚洲巨人正在其第5个五年计划继续向着保持两位数增长的目标迈进,仅仅一步之遥于当今世界第三大经济强国德国。
目前,全球日益增长的食物需求、气候变化,以及将农作物转化为生产生物燃料的压力进一步促使了世界范围内食品价格的上涨,中国也不例外。一些基本食物,比如猪肉,鸡蛋和食用油价格的上涨,已经促使中国的食品价格创造了历年市场价格的新高。我们知道食品价格在居民消费价格指数(CPI)中具有极为重要的意义,根据最新公布的数据,中国的通胀率已经达到8.5%。
为了给过热的经济降温,中国正在尝试提升银行利率的方法,主要做法有让中央银行给银行系统打分,以及提升银行储备的基尼基数。就目前看来,这是一个致力于控制钱币和信用形势的温和举措。
中国经济在其2001年加入世贸组织后进一步得到了长足发展。与此同时,这种高速增长的态势也使泰国、马来西亚、新加坡、菲律宾、印度尼西亚、韩国等邻国一度视中国为潜在威胁。对于这些邻国来说,如果中国过去30年的经济发展已使其成为国际市场上一个强大的竞争对手,那么,入世后的中国,以及随之而来的贸易和关税堡垒的解构,则使中国吸引了更多境外投资,这就意味着这些邻国们将失去或许原本应该属于他们的境外投资。
事实是,尽管进入中国的外资大幅增长,之后的形势却并非如这些邻国们原本的想象。2004年,中国替代日本成为世界第三大出口国,仅仅次于美国和德国。2007年,中国的出口超过了美国;预测2008年到2009年,中国将超过传统出口大国德国。
但是外资却不仅在中国获得了大幅增长,东盟ASEAN的十国也经历了跟中国类似的外资增长。这很大程度上受益于同一时期中国经济的高速增长。由于许多在中国生产的产品和零部件,最终都是在泰国、马来西亚、菲律宾、韩国以及中国台湾地区进行组装,整个亚洲区域事实上都分享了由中国这台巨大的经济机器所带来的经济利益。
研究发现,中国加入世贸貌似给亚洲区域经济带来更多复杂性,但结果却是一个效率日益提高的亚洲生产网络。甚至连日本都受益于中国的经济崛起。如果不是中国对高端生产部件和大众消费品的大量需求,日本很难克服其长达15年的经济低迷。印度和许多东南亚国家,尽管出于和日本不同的理由,但结果也都受益于中国经济的崛起。这些国家丰富的自然资源比如橡胶、石油、棕榈油和天然气等,正好可以满足中国日益增长的原材料需求。
中国和其邻国的关系是由一系列复杂的网状般的区域合作协议构成的,目标是创造多边集团,具有代表性的有东盟ASEAN和亚太经济合作组织APEC。对于中国和其邻国来说,非常重要的是维持彼此间相对稳定的关系,同时降低在国际经贸事务上对美国的依赖。
另一方面,中国在亚洲和世界上所扮演的角色重要性正日益提升。可以说,中国经济正成为世界经济格局中新的一极。2007年初,在菲律宾举行的由该区域共16个国家出席的第二届东亚峰会上,菲律宾总统阿罗约曾公开宣称:“我们很骄傲拥有中国这样的老大哥。”中国的经济学家们向来认为:区域间的相互交流和独立是中国经济强劲发展的关键因素,在此基础上,才有整个区域间经济,国与国之间才可保持可持续性和长久发展。毫无疑问,中国和其亚洲合作伙伴成为世界经济楷模的时代正日益临近,这一点可以在中国历年预期的增长率总是被现实中更高的增长率替代得到印证。

Game for online MBA?

Written on June 29, 2008 by Dirk Hopfl in Go for IE

IE Business School Student working on computer

The original of this article was published on June 28 by India Times

With the advent of the Internet and advancements in technology, schools have realised the importance of online education. In order to cater to working professionals, who donâ??t have the time to attend a full-time MBA programme, many schools have started offering online programmes.

Online MBA is an excellent option for working students: you can pursue an MBA and take up specialisations such as finance, marketing, international business, etc.

â??One important benefit and difference between an ordinary MBA and an online MBA is the asynchronous sessions. When you have the time, you follow the forums and appear for the exams. Also, the opportunity to review classes and discussions several times is extremely valuable. This is the only way for many managers to do an MBA, and of course valuable for participants in different time zones. The challenge is to â??virtuallyâ?? put your personality, skills and knowledge, and network across. Also you need more cross-cultural and social skills in order to succeed on the Internet; words are more apparent when written online,â? says Sara Sjogren, a Swedish student pursuing an online MBA at IE Business School.

An online MBA is mostly attractive to people with financial constraints, commitments to work or family, or the lack of access to higher education. The most obvious advantage of an online degree is the flexibility to study and learn whenever you want.

You are not time bound and can fit the online schedules in your working life. â??Again one main benefit and reason for me to choose this programme is flexibility. I work as a manager and am trying to pursue my business ideas as well. I also have domestic responsibilities. So this is the only way I can manage an MBA,â? adds Sjogren. Read more…

On June 30, 2008, students of IE Business School will have another great opportunity in the Venture Lab Speaker Series to share the experience and opinions about what innovation means for one of the most innovative Spanish entrepreneurs: DAVID DEL VAL. David is a pioneer in compression technology for video and founder of V-Xtreme, a company acquired by Microsoft two years after its creation. Del Val owns more than 16 international patents in US, Europe and Japan. Holder of a telco engineering degree from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Del Val launched his career in 1994 with the first broadcasting of video by Internet in Spain, using technology preceding the current ADSL (conventional telephone line) system.

During the summer of 1994 he joined Stanford University for a master in computer science. He was totally â??infectedâ? by silicon valley´s innovation and entrepreneurial culture and ended up founding VXtreme Inc., a company with Cisco, Softbank and Informix among its investors and CNN as its key client. There are currently millions of users of Del Val´s technology in more than 29 languages.

After V-Xtreme was acquired by Microsoft, he spent some years there running the R&D department but finally Del Val decided to come back to Spain and start up, once again, a new venture, TechFoundries. TechFoundries is â??five companies in oneâ? with business lines in interactive TV, video on demand, domestic technology, etcâ?¦ media, technology and telecommunications. This was in 2000.

And recently a new challenge knocked at his door� One of the most innovative companies in the world persuaded him to head its innovation and technology department: Telefónica. But where does an entrepreneur fit in a big company like this?

â??Now I am managing one of the largest innovation budgets in the worldâ?¦ it is a huge entrepreneurial challengeâ?¦ but this time I have resources from the beginningâ?

IE analyzes the future of supply chain management

Written on June 27, 2008 by Dirk Hopfl in Academics, Live IE

Twenty five experts from Europe, China, Japan and the United States met at IE Business School for the 10th Supply Chain Thought Leaders Round Table last June 24-25. The academics came to Madrid to discuss how Supply Chain Management impacts our global economy. Over the course of the two day summit it emerged that it is no longer enough for supply chains to be efficient and responsive and to help create a competitive edge for companies, they must also be socially and environmentally responsible.

Charles Corbett of the University of California and Patrick Crawford of the Carbon Disclosure Project discussed current trends and opened questions on how to calculate and interpret carbon footprint information. They predicted that with retailers such as Tesco and WalMart joining other firms in committing to provide greenhouse gas emissions information on product labels, the field of â??carbon footprintingâ? is set to explode.

Prashant Yadav of Zaragoza Logistics Center and Luk Wassenhove of INSEAD explained how to create sustainable health supply chains in developing countries. Their work on anti-malaria supply chains showed that whilst the development of new drugs is vital, it is access to these drugs in far reaching corners of our globe that makes the difference. Access however is not achieved by merely shipping drugs to the destination. It requires the skilful alignment of the often conflicting economic interests of the different players in the distribution system. Their work on anti-malaria supply chains supports organizations like the Gates and Clinton Foundation.

Daniel Corsten of IE Business School, chairman of this 10th SCTL, demonstrated how small and mid-sized firms in developing countries can create jobs and grow if they are given better access to capital. Initially explored by the Worldbank in Mexico and Latin America, he discussed a similar financial programme in Russia that reduced the cost of capital for small suppliers by linking its creditworthiness with that of its large customers.

Hau Lee of Stanford University confirms: â??Over the last ten years we have seen a shift in focus of supply chain management. While initially it was about improving on time, cost and quality, we now see strong interest in responsible supply chain management.â?

For Santiago Íñiguez de Onzoño, Dean of IE Business School: â??It is encouraging to see how supply chains contribute to corporate social responsibility. At IE we believe that this new dimension in management will increasingly influence the future actions of managersâ?.

2008年6月3日至5日2008博鳌亚洲论坛(Boao Forum for Asia):“绿色亚洲(Green Asia)在亚洲之外的第一个资本峰会在伦敦召开,IE商学院荣幸成为应邀参加该峰会的单位之一。照片是伦敦峰会现场。
smaller 03062008.JPG

在论坛之后召开的新闻发布会上,IE也受新浪(Sina)财经频道委托,与中国中央电视台(CCTV)新华社(Xinhua News Agency),凤凰卫视(Phoenix TV)第一财经日报(China Business News)等多家国内知名媒体一起采访了论坛秘书长龙永图先生(Secretary General, Boao Forum for Asia)
这次会议阵容非常强大,英国政府那边出席的演讲嘉宾有伦敦金融城市长(The Lord Mayor of the City of London),英国总检察长(Advocate General),英国贸易投资总署首席执行官等等,知名跨国公司的演讲者则包括了黑石集团高级董事总经理, 高盛国际联席首席执行官,普华永道AIM创业板市场负责人,麦肯锡等等。
中国方面论坛秘书长龙永图的号召力自然是不言而喻,这里还特别想说一下我国驻英国大使傅莹在峰会晚宴上的演讲—–出人意料地亲切和有趣,可以说集西方式的幽默和东方式的含蓄为一身。当晚傅大使上身着银色挖领修身洋装,配象牙白珍珠项链和耳环,下着黑色及膝大摆裙,配上1米65左右的身高,和保养颇好的身材,温文尔雅的言谈举止,非常尊贵大方。她的演讲完全没有长篇大论,而是引用一个个发生在今年一系列大事件中的小故事小画面,包括了她私人的感受。比如,为了突出中西方要“持续沟通和相互了解”的重要性,她对奥运火炬在伦敦遭遇的“滑铁泸”轻描淡写,却讲述了她个人在英国和中国民众间听到的令人吃惊的近乎相同的态度和疑问—–两国民众都觉得因为不被理解而倍感受伤。又比如,在讲述四川地震中中国人民互助互爱充满凝聚力的赈灾故事中,傅大使几乎没有讲任何溢美之词,只是告诉现场,这说明中国人民是和所有西方人民一样有血有肉,热爱美好生活的人民,中国人和任何普通西方社会的民众一样内心深处都渴望有个温暖殷实的家庭。非常朴实的话语,没有任何大的形容词,温婉的仪态,几乎在每次停顿之后都报以浅浅的笑,也喜欢在演讲中用一些有趣的比喻来说明她的观点,非常具有感染力。
关于博鳌亚洲论坛(Boao Forum for Asia)
博鳌亚洲论坛是一个非政府、非营利的国际组织,目前已成为亚洲以及其他大洲有关国家政府、工商界和学术界领袖就亚洲以及全球重要事务进行对话的高层次平台。博鳌亚洲论坛致力于通过区域经济的进一步整合,推进亚洲国家实现发展目标。
博鳌亚洲论坛由菲律宾前总统拉莫斯、澳大利亚前总理霍克及日本前首相细川护熙于1998年发起。2001年2月,博鳌亚洲论坛正式宣告成立。论坛的成立获得了亚洲各国的普遍支持,并赢得了全世界的广泛关注。从2002年开始,论坛每年定期在中国海南博鳌召开年会。
