It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view.

everything that china is doing is legal yet watch how the u.s. try to stop china because they think what china is doing is "wrong"
This is why India needs plenty of islands in South Indian oceans. Pacific and Arabic oceans. The problem is no resting ground for trade transit.

China operates predatory lending to gain financial control over countries when they can't afford to pay them back, using this leverage to gain the ability to build this infrastructure but do we really believe it just about trade? America is cut off from a lot of the world by sea, yet it still became the dominant power.

India should develop it's infrastructure at it's own then only can help it's neighbors against China s will and will be able to save it's neighbors from Chinese Slavery

China is becoming rich....hey but what about Chinese people?? people are working hard but can't buy a land and 5 million smart homes are empty because many can't afford... china is investing in sri lanka which will be under the water after 2036🤣 due to global warming.

@vaibhav satpute BTW, wealth is not helping a person escape from justice in China, but it could be in US or western. So if you are living in US, i bless u to be a successful businessman, but if you are living in china, i bless you to be a moral citizen, no matter how successful you were.
Chen Jeff (1 day ago)
@vaibhav satpute ...Pls read more books we are not living in ancient world, people granted the land and wealth for generations and generations. Wealth should be like a water, flowing in the economical system, not collected by a person or family. Tell me why the 1% wealth Americans paying less tax like Trump or Bezos. And why the people in the middle class feels less security on their financial situation? why people believe they enjoy less even their payroll get much higher? Financial system collapse because the problematic financial system. it has happened over and over in the history and we have to solve the problem how to let the wealth refresh ot be free from someone in power. Yea watch your cash flow not financial statement.
vaibhav satpute (1 day ago)
@Chen Jeff nobody can buy yhe the land in china, you can only get the land for 70years. but people should be able to atleast rent the house..the wealth inquality is not a good thing for any nation.

.... Are u saying why people working so hard in NY but cant even buy a house in DT????? Come on, you are not ignorant. young and low-income people need to rent a house in the city, but they also can buy a house in another small city. It's an option and it also call marketing economic.

Incompetent politicians make problem bigger while spending time. Please do unification quickly! When is Korea unification ? 2019.7.15 - I am Zhang Fei. (張飛) in Japan ・The missiles that North Korea is hitting in recent years is the same thing that the PRC government is hitting. The People's Republic of China is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, so China must be in a position to stop the missiles hit of its neighbor, North Korea.  Zhang Fei (張飛) 2019.7.15 in Japan

I’m from Malaysia. China has traded with Malaysia for 2000 years. In those years, they have been world’s biggest power many times. Never once they sent troops to this region. In 16th, 17th, 18th centuries, the Portuguese, Dutch and British came, we were colonized by each. The presence of China’s power is welcomed in this region. It provides economic benefits. It also enrich cultural experience in the region. We are not afraid of China being powerful in the region, we welcome the rise of China. China don't export ideology, they don't export chaos.

Do you have humanism ? Double Refugee issues Hong Kong & North Korea 2019.7.12 - I am Zhang Fei. (張飛) ・People's Republic of China, although a permanent member of the UN Security Council, can not abide by Article 33 of the UN Refugee Convention, “PROHIBITION OF EXPULSION OR RETURN ('REFOULEMENT)”?  As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, it is absolutely impossible to send North Korean defectors back.

Germany, the USA, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan ROC all invested heavily in China and relocated many factories there in the 1990s. China's economy grew tremendously. How was this not a "win-win"? Now China is playing the victim card and claiming that only it can help to develop other countries economies.
C brtdgh (6 days ago)
India is to China as China is to the US, another rising superpower. Before the British left India, India could have left united and instead was split in two. Pakistan is to India as Taiwan is to China. We can see that China is much more ruthless in dealing with its future opponent than the US was in dealing with China, the US actively aided China's rise until recently and didn't aid Taiwan too much.

C brtdgh erm, you forget about Korean War, Vietnam war, Cold War, USA funding separatists in Tibet(Dalai lama and civil war), and xinjiang separatists(Uyghurs etc who then go to Syria and fight Assad and USA funds them even though they are Isis and al Qaeda), USA has contained China and has military bases all surrounding China and even in Afghanistan, and 30,000 troops in Japan, another 30,000 in South Korea, and sails its carriers just off Chinese coast and flies it's drones and spies on China daily? MacArthur wanted to nuke China even, but China was not scared of nuclear USA and even attacked them when they had nothing. USA did everything it could have. China not only fought USA off, but will win the war in the long run without even firing another bullet. This is art of war vs art of the deal. Lol.

My country lacks the amount of money and government flexibility that China has in abundance, so we sit there in the sidelines. However, I respect and appreciate India not being a part of China. The reasons are entirely subjective. We don't care whether the Debt Trap Diplomacy concept is used by china or not, that's for BRI affiliated countries to worry about. Maybe there isn't any debt trap, maybe China's doing all this for the betterment of humanity and a goodwill gesture, we don't really care. We stay away from BRI due to us not wanting to be indebted to an equally old, rich and vibrant civilisation we consider as potential rivals.

The Chinese taking all the advantage to take all they want just like doing those ports. It's has a big feedback with the Chinese because if the country didn't pay the loan they will always gonna take something in your country. Wise strategy and still going on. See the point that you should think wisely before dealing with China.

And all that is discussed in India is when will some temple be built. I think our government officials should realize how China is going to completely surround us and politicians and even the public should see this video before even beginning to compare India to China. Sad but true.

There is NO direct Chinese translation of the word “dominance” because there is NO concept of dominance in Chinese culture. This video views China in a western lance, shoehorning event into concepts in your culture. Not helpful.

Please read more histories, world economy used to be dominated by China a looooong time ago. So better way to interpret his is China targeting to regain the heart and center of the whole world.

Obama pivoted to Asia so fast and unexpectedly, it took a while to figure out his reasoning. Due to the American media obsession with Trump, very few Americans still have not heard of China's Belts and Roads Initiative. Has Trump mentioned it to his base even once? I try to keep informed by reading newspapers all over the world. Thanks to Vox I now discover China's BRI is much further along than I knew. I am seriously impressed by China's progress but their strategic capacities so far exceed those of western countries, especially Trump's America, I am deeply and gravely concerned. Trump and his crowd cannot compete with strategic planning at the level of the Chinese. If Trump wins in 2020, he will drag every western democracy down with America. Folks we are in deep doo doo.
