China supera a EUA como la mayor potencia diplomática del mundo

By Jordi Bou

November 27, 2019 - China ha superado a EUA como el país con la mayor red diplomática, una indicación clara de las crecientes ambiciones internacionales de Beijing

According to the Lowy Institute, China now has 276 embassies and other representative offices globally, three more than the U.S.

After China and the U.S., France is the next most connected diplomatic power, according to the report, with 267 embassies and consulates around the world. Japan is in fourth place, with Russia ranked fifth.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has been building his international profile since coming to power in 2012, seeking to put Beijing at the centre of global affairs.

China's diplomatic rise has been rapid in recent years. In 2016, it was still third behind the U.S. and France with only 267 diplomatic missions. In 2017 it had moved to second spot.
