A look at China power and the Belt and Road strategy.

Redefining the Belt and Road Initiative
The BRI is not about physical routes in Eurasia. It is a global strategy.
By Andreea Brînză
March 20, 2018
The narrative of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) as spanning over 65 countries and gathering 62 percent of the world population, 31 percent of its GDP, and 40 percent of global land area should once and for all disappear now that China has announced the extension of the BRI to Latin America.

Ever since Xi Jinping put forward China’s attempt to recreate the old Silk Road in 2013, observers have considered the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to be a project spanning Asia, Europe, and Africa, encompassing around 65 countries that have signed up for it. The two corridors that form the BRI, the Silk Road Economic Belt (the Belt) and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (the Road), were perceived as two routes that will stretch over Eurasia or the maritime rimland, respectively, to link China with Europe.

But the Belt and Road Initiative has been plagued by misconceptions ever since its unveiling. Most foreign observes have failed to grasp the complexity of the BRI, but the Chinese government also bears part of the blame, having failed to articulate a clear strategy from the beginning and building it up along the way. In 2014, Xinhua, China’s official press agency, presented a map of the BRI, picturing it as two parallel routes: one maritime and the other one by land. This created the impression that the initiative was made up of two routes connecting China and Europe. Another misconception was that the BRI is an infrastructure project focused on building railways, highways, pipelines, or ports. Both readings were simplistic.

The BRI is not a route, but a smart power strategy (a combination between cultural power and economic power) which aims to wrap the entire world, not only Eurasia and Africa, and which has become the leitmotif of China’s foreign policy. The BRI combines hard power elements, like economic investments, with a soft power strategy, like promoting Chinese culture or improving China’s image, to create an international label for Chinese foreign policy.

The Chinese have bought up the Bubbles and are pounding a new railway through Serbia to Germany. They are the only people who will touch the Balkans and certainly the only ones who'll go anywhere near the Srps.

They’re very good at copying and such, but ‘Make China great again’ seems like a slogan copied from RonaldMcDonald, i would’ve expected a tad more creativity from their side...
I actually don't give a flying fuck, furthermore nice to meet you all here! :thumb:

China's BRI initiative hits roadblock in 7 nations

ANI - Sunday 15th April, 2018
Gwadar [Pakistan], Apr 15 (ANI): China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient trade routes of Silk Road, has hit a roadblock in seven countries, according to a recent report.

The Gwadar Port in Pakistan's Balochistan province is the venue of the USD 63 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). China is developing Pakistan's power plants, airports, highways and other infrastructure under the project. Also, Beijing aims to link its landlocked western region to Gwadar.

Despite this, some analysts have expressed concerns such as rising trade deficit of Pakistan with China. There are also doubts on how Islamabad will repay off its debt to Beijing if the former is unable to do so. Also, there are worries that the price of such investment can be a huge debt burden, according to the report by Nikkei Asian Review.

"The China-Pakistan corridor will no doubt be a game changer for Pakistan, but we need to be careful. Ten years' tax concessions, 90-year leases for Chinese companies and cheap imports will impact the competitiveness of existing domestic industries," Nikkei Asian Review quoted Ehsan Malik, the CEO of Pakistan Business Council, a business policy advocacy forum, as saying.

Nikkei Asian Review and The Banker magazine have published a detailed report on the status of the BRI projects in seven countries - Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Poland, Laos and Pakistan.

The report also deduces the concerns of these countries ranging from a lack of participation by local workers and banks to unmanageable debts.

In Indonesia, the BRI project has been experiencing serious delays. Construction on a USD 6 billion railway line is running behind schedule, coupled with rising costs. This has been the same scenario in Kazakhstan and Bangladesh.

In terms of deficits, concerns have been raised about owing unmanageable debts to China in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Laos, along with Pakistan.

As per the report, Beijing's massive economic project is also plagued with sovereignty concerns. In Sri Lanka, China's takeover of the Hambantota Port has raised eyebrows over the "loss of sovereignty...

at least somebody open their eyes and see what is really happening, china on the pretext of helping you is actually, locking the country into an obligation, debt means nothing to china, few billions can be easily forgiven, what china really wants is the unfair advantage that will be handed to chinese companies over long period of time, with these unfair advantages, chinese companies will be raking in billions year after year. chinese companies making monies, chinese government taxes the companies, strict tax regime and monetary policies, strengthening international soft power to control and prosecute when ever possible against tax evaders, see how it is all falling into place?
