24 Oct Belt and Road: A Washington Perspective
Major powers are engaged in a new competition to build hard infrastructure – including roads, railways, and ports—across the broadly defined Eurasian land mass. China’s Belt & Road Initiative is the most ambitious; the cost of President Xi Jinping’s signature initiative is estimated to reach as high as US$4 trillion. But Japan has also announced its own US$200 billion “quality infrastructure” initiative, even as ASEAN, India, Russia, Turkey, and other regional powers have their own visions for connectivity.
