    The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1 will be an exuberant affair, involving glitzy cultural events, an extravagant state dinner attended by Chinese and foreign luminaries, and a grand military parade in Tiananmen Square. And, at a time of high tensions with US President Donald Trump’s administration, it will be imbued with an extra dose of patriotic enthusiasm. But while China has much to celebrate, it also has much work to do.

    Despite recent Belt and Road successes, including EU states joining, the China-led initiative still faces accusations of “debt-trap diplomacy.” The details of infrastructure projects in Sri Lanka and beyond, however, show that the Belt and Road is pushing for a new era of more equitable globalization based on “hard” and “soft” connectivity, without disrupting the existing rules and world order.
