Five years since its announcement, the publicity received by the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been steadily growing. The initiative covers 67% of the world’s population, almost 35% of world GDP and around 40% of world trade. BRI comprises multiple infrastructure projects across Eurasia, Africa and beyond, and hopes to boost China’s trade relations with the world.
We’re still in the early stages, but even now it is clear the scale of the initiative is unprecedented. If successful, the BRI will have profound impacts around the world.
