Emerging Economies Have Shifted The Balance Of World Power

Emerging Economies Have Shifted The Balance Of Power In World Trade-Lamy

----- ENGLISH VERSION -----

EMERGING ECONOMIES HAVE SHIFTED THE BALANCE OF POWER IN WORLD TRADE—LAMY
Director-General Pascal Lamy, in presenting the Richard Snape Lecture on 26 November in Melbourne, Australia, said that: “The rising weight of influence of emerging economies has shifted the balance of power. This clearly implies a number of transitions to which we have not yet adjusted as classic Westphalia concepts of sovereignty are being challenged by the realities of interdependence. Some may consider this a problem, it is perhaps better to think of it as an opportunity to look at the real shaping factors of trade.”

----- VERSION FRANÇAISE -----

SELON PASCAL LAMY, LES ÉCONOMIES ÉMERGENTES ONT DÉPLACÉ L’ÉQUILIBRE DES POUVOIRS DANS LE COMMERCE MONDIAL
Dans une allocution prononcée le 26 novembre à Melbourne (Australie) dans le cadre de la conférence Richard Snape, le Directeur général Pascal Lamy a dit: “L’influence croissante des économies émergentes a déplacé l’équilibre des pouvoirs. Cette évolution suppose nécessairement un certain nombre de transitions auxquelles nous ne nous sommes pas encore adaptés, les conceptions westphaliennes classiques de la souveraineté étant remises en question par les réalités de l’interdépendance. Si certains peuvent y voir un problème, peut-être vaut-il mieux y voir une occasion d’examiner les facteurs qui déterminent réellement le commerce.”

----- VERSIÓN ESPAÑOLA -----

SEGÚN LAMY, LAS ECONOMÍAS EMERGENTES HAN MODIFICADO EL EQUILIBRIO DE PODER DEL COMERCIO MUNDIAL
El 26 de noviembre, en la presentación de la Conferencia Richard Snape en Melbourne (Australia) el Director General, Pascal Lamy, dijo lo siguiente : “El aumento creciente de la influencia de las economías emergentes ha modificado el equilibrio de poder. Esto implica claramente un número de transiciones a las que aún no nos hemos adaptado, a medida que las realidades de la interdependencia cuestionan los conceptos westfalianos clásicos de la soberanía. Posiblemente algunos consideren que esto es un problema, pero quizás sea mejor verlo como una oportunidad de analizar los verdaderos factores que configuran el comercio.”
