By Yves Tiberghien on ParisTech Review

Le 18e Congrès du Parti communiste chinois, qui s'est tenu début novembre, a posé la question de l'évolution du modèle de croissance. Mais au moment de s'interroger sur son avenir et les défis qui l'attendent, il faut revenir sur ce qui a caractérisé ce modèle jusqu'ici. La réussite spectaculaire de l'économie chinoise amènera-t-elle un consensus de Beijing à succéder à celui de Washington ?
During its 18th Congress held in last November, the Chinese Communist Party has been discussing the country's economic future. At a time when many questions arise about its upcoming challenges, one must take a look back at the current model. Will the spectacular success of the Chinese economy bring forth a Beijing consensus as a successor to the Washington consensus?
