Do not let Europe judge the chinese model

18 July 2010

During the seminar on sustainable development in Shanghai in June 2010, the Belgian newspaper L’AVENIR interviews Nicolas Godelet on his vision of the Chinese model that he considers a way of life.

Topics such as the real estate developers’ race for money, the classification of buildings in China: “because there was such a person or that event happened” for example. All these habits, which seen from the outside, can seem shocking but which according to him are simply at the scale of the country. He also emphasizes on the rapidity of Chinese economic development.
