    Giving priority to important institutional innovations and rule-making will not only provide opportunities for promoting China’s industrial capacity cooperation and manufacturing upgrading, but also promote a new round of prosperity-oriented growth for global trade and new globalization.

    If there is anything about B&R that can contribute to the future of global governance and world order, it is the inherent opportunity in that proposal to further democratize international relations and make globalization an equal, more sustainable process for sharing benefits among all nations.

    A less alarmed view of China’s Belt and Road Initiative finds first of all that the whole project is much overhyped. Figures about investments include projects that had been previously launched. Although China is likely to increase its influence in the region, its growing influence should not be equated with aggression. In determining how to react to the Silk Road initiative, the West should draw on a major strategic consideration: Do the U.S. and its allies plan to block any and all increases in Chinese influence—or merely contain those moves that entails China’s use of force to dominate other countries?

    During his second official visit to Beijing in less than a year, Duterte held formal talks with both Chinese President Xi Jinping as well as Premiere Li Keqiang, where the two neighbors reaffirmed their commitment to look beyond their difference in the South China Sea and, instead, focus on areas of common concern. In exchange for these diplomatic and strategic concessions, Duterte expects China to serve as a key partner for his country’s national development. China’s new Silk Road initiative, in particular, has caught the Philippines’ attention.

    Shaping, coordinating, and stabilizing domestic and international expectations concerning the Belt and Road Initiative will maximize the positive effect of economic policy and minimize potential negative side effects. Four years of achievements and experience have made it clear that the initiative not only promises huge immediate and long-term business opportunities but also requires striking a balance between seizing every opportunity available and guarding against possible risks.

    The China Dream was something of a nationalist mantra, framed as a rejuvenation by which China would recapture its former position of global prominence, commensurate with its status as the world’s second largest economy. Considerable attention is devoted to the risks and opportunities of this rebalancing – and to the related consequences for sustainable Chinese development and the broader global economy.

    Much as the relocation of East Asia’s labor-intensive industry to lower-wage China stirred a virtuous economic cycle that went much beyond mere capital accumulation, so also China-Africa production capacity cooperation and transfer can create a sum bigger than its parts. Far from being a new form of colonialism, as the critics have panned it, the transfer of industrial capacity and world-class infrastructure will reduce transaction costs in Africa. But success abroad must first begin at home.

    China has pledged to connect Central Asia with Southeast Asia – reminiscent of the Silk Road – also connecting the Middle East and Africa with a massive infrastructure project set to surpass America’s Marshall Plan that rebuilt Europe after World War ll. Our leaders at the national, state and local level need to find ways to assure China's continued rise does not come at our demise.

China is surging ahead fast on the global economic platform. With advances in technology, infrastructure, education and much more, the nation is well on its way to becoming the superpower it aspires to be.

The strategy is an economic and foreign policy which strives to foster connections between China, the terrestrial Silk Road Economic Belt and the Maritime Silk Road, similar to the network of trade routes from the past. The Belt and Road initiative demonstrates China’s goals to maintain their position as a top player in global affairs and world trade, provide a means to channel China’s excess capacity, as well as bridge the infrastructure gap across China and beyond. >>>
