DIARIO GEOSTRATEGICO 14-09-2021

Alcuni temi dal diario di oggi:

– La Cina e i piani per il 6G entro il 2030Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies has unveiled its 6G plans, saying that it aims to launch 6G products around 2030, the company’s rotating chairman Eric Xu Zhiju wrote recently, in a sign of the company’s resilience after a year-long US’ ban (Global Times)

– La Cina rimane la prima potenza manifatturiera del pianetaChina remains as the world’s largest manufacturing power, as its manufacturing sector value has ranked the first globally for 11 consecutive years since 2010, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said on Monday (Global Times)

– La sicurezza nucleare in IndiaThe nuclear domain is constantly grappling with challenges of existing and emerging threats in terms of both nuclear safety and security. Perceptions around nuclear security threats became particularly serious after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States (US). Since then, the international nuclear community has channeled their efforts to build and strengthen global institutions, norms, and regimes in order to build and/or sustain robust and protective mechanisms in the nuclear security domain (ORF)

– Muri in EuropaLa previsione di nuovi flussi migratori illegali diretti in Europa dall’Afghanistan in aggiunta ai flussi ornai consolidati dall’Asia e dall’Africa, sta determinando il “fiorire” di muri anti-migranti in diverse nazioni di confine dell’Europa (Analisi Difesa)

– L’USMCA (USA, Messico, Canada) come opportunitàThe passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) through the U.S. Congress with overwhelming bipartisan support, as well as with strong political backing in Canada and Mexico, underscored the importance of USMCA for North American trade and economic relations. It builds on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and largely retains NAFTA’s commitment to lowering trade barriers although it rolls back trade openness in the auto sector. USMCA also adds robust new and timely commitments, particularly on digital trade, labor, and the environment. (Brookings)

– Esercitazioni in comune tra Australia e IndiaLe marine di India e Australia hanno concluso l’esercitazione congiunta AUSINDEX 2021, sviluppatasi nell’arco di quattro giorni al largo del porto di Darwin, nell’Australia Settentrionale. Nelle stesse ore i ministri della Difesa e degli Esteri dei due Paesi hanno aperto nella capitale indiana i lavori del loro primo dialogo strategico (Analisi Difesa)

– La Corea del Nord ha testato un nuovo missile da crociera a lungo raggio lo scorso fine settimanaNorth Korea test-fired a new “long-range cruise missile” over the weekend, state media reported Monday, with the United States saying the nuclear-armed country was threatening its neighbors and beyond. Pictures in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper showed a missile exiting one of five tubes on a launch vehicle in a ball of flame, and a missile in horizontal flight (The Defense Post)

– Le strategie digitali di Al Qaeda e ISISLast weekend marked two important dates in the history of jihadism: the 20-year anniversary of the 9/11 attack by al-Qaeda (AQ) and the start of the trial in Paris of the 13 November 2015 attacks carried out by Islamic State (IS). This article aims to take stock of the progression of AQ’s propaganda following the emergence of IS: to what extent do the two groups’ digital strategies embody their ideological differences and reflect their organisational evolution? How do they diverge? Despite the weakening of both group’s media capabilities, how has AQ’s media managed not to be overshadowed by IS’s stronger brand and more frequent propaganda machine? (GNET)

– L’importanza delle reti ad alta velocitàHigh-speed rail (HSR) development has been recognized as an important policy tool for regional development around the world, notably in Asia and Europe. However, the introduction, development, and evolution of HSR have also attracted debate on complex issues, such as project appraisal, the wider economic benefits for regional and national development, the quality of life impacts on society, cohesion and social equity concerns, and the diversity of the challenges faced during execution. While transport corridors have led to substantial benefits in many countries and regions, there have also been cases resulting in HSR patchworks rather than networks (ADBI)
