Belt and Road: A Chinese World Order

26 February 2019

Bruno Macaes

The author examines the Belt and Road initiative, the Chinese president Xi Jinping’s ambitious geopolitical project, which aims to construct trade routes between China and over seventy countries. China has referred to India as its “natural partner” in the project, but Macaes suggests that the situation in India is more ambiguous. He looks closely at the economic and strategic challenges, and the risks that the initiative could pose for India.
