Services ferroviaires eurasiatiques et stratégies économiques et géopolitiques de la Chine

Abstract : Transport infrastructures structure territories and define trade networks. Over the past two decades, China has completed the infrastructural modernization of its coastal territories which serve their export oriented economy. With the emergence of Eurasian Rail Networks, new spatial and strategic drivers are taken into account by Beijing. The key objective is to combine an improved domestic economic growth in the remote landlocked provinces with geopolitical ambitions into Central Asia. China pro-motes economic development, political stability and security concerns within its inland provinces as well as with their neighbouring countries. Eurasian Rail Land bridges linking Europe to China by crossing Russia, Kazakhstan or Mongolia appear as one of the cornerstones to build the largest economic market of the World. And Beijing defi-nitely assumes a geostrategic role to keep the control of those new routes with a huge forthcoming potential.
