«Si apre all’orizzonte una fase storica, paragonabile all’affermazione del Dollaro e dell’Euro. Riconoscere prontamente le opportunità e saper gestire efficacemente i rischi che derivano dalle prospettive di affermazione del Renminbi come nuova valuta di scambio e di investimento influenzerà la competitività delle imprese italiane e dei portafogli di investimento» così dichiara Vincenzo De Luca, Console Generale d’Italia a Shanghai nella prefazione alla guida “Internazionalizzazione della valuta cinese” edita da Diacron Press, marchio editoriale del gruppo di consulenza contabile e fiscale internazionale, in collaborazione con AZ Investment Management, la sussidiaria a Shanghai del gruppo Azimut. «Per l’Italia la Cina è un mercato di importanza crescente» spiega il Console «vi sono oggi circa 2.000 aziende italiane in tutta la Cina e investimenti accumulati italiani in Cina pari a circa 10 miliardi di euro. Si tratta di una tendenza che aumenterà in futuro e che intendiamo alimentare incoraggiando gli scambi con l’Italia: siamo infatti il primo Paese Shengen per il rilascio dei visti in Cina nel 2012 con 285.000 visti rilasciati a cittadini cinesi».La pubblicazione, disponibile in formato e-book a partire da metà settembre, spiega opportunità e rischi del processo di internazionalizzazione della valuta cinese avviato nel 2009, con particolare riferimento alla gestione dei patrimoni societari e personali, alle iniziative commerciali delle imprese italiane e alla redditività complessiva degli investimenti.
