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.

Belt and Road explained: Where the Silk Road began and where it's going | DW News
 
07:41
Officially it's the Chinese government's Belt and Road Initiative: The New Silk Road is a trillion-dollar series of infrastructure projects meant to smooth the way for Chinese goods across the globe. It translates to highways, bridges, railways, ports; with a network stretching across Asia, Africa and into Europe. Partner countries are often eager for investment, and for improvements to old infrastructure. But the New Silk Road isn't a charity project. China is lending money, and spreading debt. Sri Lanka even handed a port to the Chinese after nearing default. And then there's the geopolitical significance: China is aiming for new influence on world markets. China’s New Silk Road is a highly centralized plan that leans on loads of cash and diplomacy from Beijing. The original Silk Road by comparison was a loose collection of trade routes that stretched from the Far East across the plains of Central Asia to the Western World. So what's similar apart from the name? You might say that the original Silk Road was where globalization got its start. For this report by DW's Mathias Bölinger, DW spoke with Jason Jian, International Sales Director of the Broad Group and Ma Haiyun of Frostburg State University.

China's New "Silk Road": Future MEGAPROJECTS
 
11:17
China's $1 trillion One Belt One Road (New Silk Road) initiative is unprecedented in size and scope. President Xi Jinping has sealed megaproject deals with 65 countries to construct ports, power stations, rail lines, roads, and all the tunnels and bridges needed to connect them back to mainland China.

Script: Having recently completed both the world’s most extensive system of expressways and the planet’s longest high speed rail network, China is now looking beyond its borders for opportunities to keep building. President Xi Jinping announced at a recent summit that Beijing has sealed megaproject deals with 65 countries throughout Eurasia and Africa to construct ports, power stations, rail lines, roads, and all the tunnels and bridges needed to connect them back to mainland China. At a total cost of over $1 trillion, the One Belt, One Road initiative is unprecedented in size and scope. So is the bold funding mechanism: China will use its large, state-run banks to provide most of the financing, a risky move, when you consider how few of the nations in the O.B.O.R. could afford something like this on their own. “Oh,” say the leaders of economically-challenged, underdeveloped Laos, Yemen, or Ethiopia — or the blood-soaked regime of Bashar al-Assad in war-ravaged Syria — “you want to loan us billions of dollars to build some cool stuff in our countries? Of course, why not!?” China is hard-selling the project as a way to boost its westward connections, an update of the silk road trade route that played a significant role in developing China and the rest of the region 1,000 years ago. But many analysts see this comparison as little more than a marketing pitch. Al Jazeera clip: “Is the real point of this, East-West service then simply to boost China’s westward connections? [Pauline Loong] “Well I wouldn’t say simply to boost China’s westward connections, but I totally agree with Charles that it’s more a PR stunt. To call it the “Silk Road,” that’s really brilliant—evocative of romantic camel travels in the past. When, you know, you have these lovely silks and trade and so forth. And it’s good, because look at all the headlines it has been getting, but in practical terms, it’s early days yet.” [Bryce] Aside from the lessons China learned from its own recent infrastructure boom, Beijing is also drawing inspiration from the American Marshall Plan which financed the rebuilding of Western Europe after it was decimated during the second world war. That program was worth the equivalent of $130 billion in today’s dollars and ensured the US had reliable export markets for the manufactured goods and machinery its growing economy had become dependent on producing. China’s modern version — first announced in 2013 — is the signature initiative of President Xi Jinping. Several projects have already been completed. Earlier this year London became the 15th European city connected directly to China through an ever-expanding global rail system, meaning freight trains loaded with goods can now arrive after a 12,000km journey all the way from the east coast of the landmass. And, at a cost of $4 billion, China also just completed Africa’s first transnational electric railway, which runs 466 miles from Djibouti to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Chinese companies designed the system, built the line, and supplied the train cars...

China's One Belt One Road Could Make Or Break This Poor European Country (HBO)
 
07:14
China’s One Belt One Road initiative could be the most ambitious infrastructure plan in history. With more than $900 billion committed across four continents, it's already the biggest sovereign infrastructure project ever conducted. But it's also a leap of faith towards a goal of reshaping global trade by reconnecting places along the historic Silk Road trade route with new ports, highways and railroads. While most of the projects are concentrated in Asia, China has also extended the initiative beyond its natural sphere of influence. Since 2012, it has made $15 billion worth of infrastructure commitments across central and eastern Europe. For a country like Montenegro, one of Europe’s smallest and poorest, China’s business represents a massive opportunity — and a massive risk. When the Chinese government guaranteed a loan to Montenegro to finance the construction of one 25 mile stretch of its first-ever highway, one condition was that a Chinese state contractor would do 70 percent of the work. But the World Bank believes that the Chinese loan — which Montenegro will pay back between 2020 and 2040 — is a threat to Montenegro’s long-term financial stability. VICE News Tonight traveled to the highway to find out where exactly it's leading.

The New Silk Road: Khorgos reemerges as the transit hub between the east and west
 
04:23
신 실크로드의 중심 카자흐스탄을 가다 Kazakhstan. The largest country in Central Asia boasts abundant oil and natural gas reserves. It also enjoys a geographical advantage. Being located between China and Europe... enabled it to serve as a gateway connecting the East and West along the Silk Road. Kim Hyesung has more on the significant role Kazakhstan can still play as a key trading hub for the world. Deserts and a sea of endless peaks... of the snow-topped Tianshan mountains. It's the silk road, an ancient trade route connecting the East and West. And now, a revival. One of the last sections of the Western Europe-Western China Highway linking China, Kazakhstan and Russia has been completed this September. (Standup) "With the new road open, now it takes about four hours by car from Almaty to Khorgos, Kazakhstan's border with China." The highway is part of the One Belt One Road Initiative, proposed by China in 2013 to recreate the silk road by connecting land and sea ports, covering more than 60 countries that account for a third of the world GDP. The 130-hectare Khorgos Gateway, lying at the heart of Euraisa, is the second largest dry port in the world. (standup) "Here at the Khorgos Gateway, four to five trains from China arrive everyday, shipping all kinds of goods, from food to the latest in consumer electronics." While the highway is awaiting completion in Russia to officially begin operation, trains have already started shuttling goods between China and Germany, along the 11,000-kilometer long rail route. Shipping them via sea lanes takes up to 50 days, but using the railway requires only around 15 days,... increasing transport efficiency. Once the highway connecting China and Russia is open, road travel between the continents is expected to take around 10 days. Having processed 2 million tons of cargo last year, the Khorgos dry port is working to handle more. (English) "Our main goal is to become a regional logistic hub. By 2020, we will reach the project capcity which is 540,000 TEUs per year." Khorgos is also becoming a thriving commercial market of its own. At the shared free trade zone, Kazakh and Chinese people can cross the border with out a visa, buy goods at thousands of stores, including food, clothes and even Korean cosmetics tax-free. (Chinese) "I come here from China every day. It's visited by more than 10 thousand people a day. Over the last three years, sales have doubled almost every year." Free flow of goods and people. For Kazakhstan, the ninth largest largest country in the world, the One Belt One Road Initiative is an opportunity to diversify its economy. (English) "landlocked country, before... it was very difficult, Because of the decrease of logistical costs, other sectors of economy like manufacturing became very attractive for the foreign direct investment." And companies, like Dongsung, are hitching a ride on the boom. (Korean) "We commissioned a third of the road connecting Almaty and Khorgos. Kazakhstan's developing rapidly, and with more infrastructure projects underway, there are more opportunities for Korean companies to do business here." (Korean) "Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, countries in Eurasia that used to be isolated are slowly reconnecting with the world. At a time when the global economy is slowing down, the new silk road won't just make transportation more efficient, and increase exchanges of goods and energy resources, it will also drive the global economy and mark an important chapter of modern history." The one-trillion dollar One Belt One Road project is still in its initial stages, but a glimpse of that future is already beeing seen in Khorgos, once again connecting the east and west as a vibrant transit hub.

China's New Silk Road - Documentary The Ancient Silk Road was a major trade route that linked Europe and Asia between the 2nd century BC and the late 16th AD. Five years ago, the government announced a new plan, “One Belt, One Road”, an initiative to revive the Silk Road. The strategy seeks to help China play a bigger role in global affairs through developing an infrastructure that would unite the countries of the two continents, Asia and Europe, under a cohesive economic area. Many ancient Chinese cities that were once outposts along the Silk Road, desert oases or transport hubs are now rapidly transforming themselves into megacities, so that they can, once again, service and profit from the trade route. The modern Silk Road, a trade route between Asia and Europe, is under construction. The gigantic project is the brainchild of Chinese president Xi Jinping. The New Silk Road is one of the most ambitious undertakings by far to be put forward by the Chinese president Xi Jinping. 10,000 kilometers of road, a railway line and a shipping route are to run from western China to Europe via Kazakhstan, the Urals and Moscow. Since the start of the 21st century China has become the most important export nation on the global stage. But in light of increasing tensions in the South China Sea and the threat from North Korea, it is becoming more and more important for China to open up alternative trade routes. As a result the country has turned its gaze westward, to central Asia with its many resources and to Europe, which is still its most important trading partner. The construction of the road with the parallel railway line has already begun in Chongqing, a megacity in the country’s interior that’s just one example of the economic boom of the past thirty years. The products made here will, it is hoped, reach European customers effortlessly in a few years’ time. But it is not just China’s exporters who hope to benefit from this infrastructure project. Rural regions in the west of the country should also see a boost. There is the province of Xinjiang for example, which has seen little of the economic growth of recent years. But China’s ambitions go beyond its national borders. The planned New Silk Road runs past rich oil fields as it goes through Kazakhstan. The extraction of oil is to be ramped up, thereby securing China’s growing need for energy. By extending the route all the way to the edge of the Urals, Beijing can get all the way to Russia. But it is not certain whether the former big brother will welcome the expansion of China’s sphere of influence all the way to central Asia and Europe. In the form of a geopolitical road movie, this documentary looks at the far-reaching shifts in the Eurasian power balance. Sooner or later the Europeans will have to take a stance on China’s new ‘soft imperialism’. History of China playlist: http://worldresources.tripod.com/first-emperor.html

China's One Belt, One Road project has been described as the largest overseas investment drive ever launched by a single country. So far China has pledged $900bn to build ports, highways and power grids in about 60 different countries. When it's finished, this ultra-modern trade route will give China much easier access to markets all over the world. But the project has been criticised for a number of reasons. One of the main problems surrounds who really benefits. Infrastructure projects don't always end in growth. So what happens when the countries involved are unable to pay back their Chinese creditors? Since the project was first announced in 2013, China's growth has slowed, but Bejing is pressing ahead, leading some to question China's expanding political influence via economics. India, the US, and Australia have declined so far to be part of it although Pakistan and New Zealand have embraced the mega project. While Pakistan is a key part of the plan to connect three billion people in Asia, Africa and Europe via trade routes, what happens to the local economy when all roads lead to Beijing?

Thomas Fingar: Understanding China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative
 
01:01:56
China is heavily investing in two infrastructure routes: a “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” stretching from Southern China across the Indian Ocean to connect Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Africa to the Mediterranean; and a land-based Silk Road Economic Belt connecting Western China to Europe via Central Asia. Establishing these transcontinental trade routes will likely cost over one trillion dollars and will cover 65% of the world's population. This investment could help fill a wide “infrastructure investment gap” in China and the 68 other Asian, African, and European countries it passes through, however, traditional international development actors such as multilateral investment banks and developed nations are concerned about the outcomes, terms, and process that come with this massive investment. There are still a number of questions surrounding how China might protect the route after it's built and if the benefits will outweigh the risk. Should recipient countries be worried about political strings that might come attached to OBOR projects? What impact does this different unilateral, loan-based model have on the recipient countries? How likely is China to succeed in achieving these grand investment goals and how will a project of this scale continue to contribute to China’s own growth? What type of impact does this project have on global trade in general? Join us and Dr. Thomas Fingar, a Shorenstein APARC fellow in the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, to discuss these and other questions surrounding China’s massive undertaking.

Belt and Road initiative | Knight Frank Middle East | Taimur Khan The Belt and Road Initiative was launched by China in 2013 with an aim to revive the great Silk Road as well as provide a new platform for multilateral cooperation to create new trade routes, economic links and business networks. It covers 69 countries and encompassing around 60% of the world’s population and 40% of global GDP. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is expected to deploy 900 billion US Dollars in investment. Knight Frank report “New Frontiers” analysis of the UAE’s prospects as a result of the initiative giving the UAE ease to do business as a strategic location. It has become a focal point for Chinese capital within the region. Over 4200 firms have set up base within the UAE to serve not only Gulf Countries (GCC) but also African countries as well. The partnership between these two countries has existed since 1984. But more recently, the focal point of this investment has been Dubai. China is Dubai’s largest non-owed partner. We have seen an increase in trade, an increase in tourism and real estate investment. In the year to Q1, 2017, Chinese tourists visiting Dubai increased by 60% making the 4th largest nationality to visit Dubai. The Chinese also consistently ranks among the top 10 most active real estate investors within Dubai. The UAE ranks third in terms of market invest potential out of these 67 countries. The ties between China and the UAE are expected to grow in the coming years as Dubai strengthens its position as a global hub for Travel, Trade and investment ahead of Expo 2020.

transport logistic | The new Silk Road
 
06:16
It's the largest construction project ever. It will change enormous sectors of the transport and logistics industry. It will have an impact on the economy, even on political power structures: The New Silk Road Prof. Hans-Christian Pfohl, Supply Chain- und Network Management, TU Darmstadt: „The New Silk Road offers logistics providers opportunities, also for the logistics of industrial companies. Because here with a land connection by rail is an alternative to air freight that needs five days to ocean freight that needs six weeks. Rail freight needs 15 days. It can be 12 days. The advantages can already be seen: at Duisburg harbour, 50 trains a week arrive.” With an investment volume of roughly one billion Euros China's mammoth project has stirred up the world of logistics. It's uncertain how European companies will collaborate in the One-Belt, One-Road initiative. But with the right strategies there are opportunities to be part of the developments. Hairong Chen, Vice President, Sinotrans Limited: “Globally, we need many cooperation partners . For example, in Germany we already have many partners. That's neccessary. We couldn't achieve so much alone.“ Deutsche Bahn already has a number of partners in China and has successfully developed it´s connections with Eurasian countries. Looking at business prospects, the trend is clear. Dr. Carsten Hinne, Senior Vice President Corridor Development China Eurasien Corridor, Deutsche Bahn: „We've continuously increased business along the Eurasian corridor. To name a figure, last year we transported 85,000 standard containers. And we aim to transport 100,000 containers by 2020.“ Medium-sized transport and logistics companies have profited for years on the new routes. The air and sea-freight expert, Bolloré has realigned its offers due to the increased demand. Rail transport is an inherent part of the portfolio. The Dutch logistic group GVT has opened a Dutch pavillion in Chengdu. Apart from the transport of goods to Europe, the Netherlands is now exporting goods from the Benelux to China. Senator International has also been concentrating on rail travel. The Hamburg company has established the product Asia Rail Bridge. Logistics giant DHL sees greater prospects in rail connections between Europe and Asia. Apart from opening new markets freight should be more sustainable. Thomas Kowitzki, DHL: “Customers profit from shorter journeys, compared to ocean freight and lower costs, compared to air freight. But we see further prospects with rail transport. We can reach new markets, we can open up for countries like Japan and South Korea, we can reach our climate protection aims because transport by rail is more climate friendly.” Mostly European ports profit by the increase in ocean container freight. Piraeus, Rotterdam, Duisburg or Hamburg are all enormous transhipment points. Not just because of the ships but because containers from China arrive here daily. Ingo Egloff, Hamburger Hafen: „It's a chance to try out new means of logistics, for example by stabilizing transport operations. But the conditions have to be right“. The New Silk Road is anything but a sure-fire success. On the Chinese side national interests are most important. A European aim will be to work together on an equal basis. Ingo Egloff, Hamburger Hafen: “Partnerships must be on an equal footing because anything else is not in our interests. That's why it’s very significant that the German government and also the European Union has made it clear that there must be equal conditions. That means, when China wants to invest in Europe, European companies must be able to invest in China.”

Chinese workers have built bridges in Serbia, a huge railroad tunnel in Uzbekistan and a gas and oil pipeline across Myanmar. These are just a few of the dozens of massive foreign infrastructure projects China has financed across the world as part of President Xi Jinping's 'Belt and Road Initiative.' In the six years since President Xi first floated the project, at least 124 countries have signed on to what is one of the largest international construction projects in history. Over the next decade, investment bank Morgan Stanley forecasts China will have plowed more than $1 trillion into the project. But in spite of some notable successes, the project continues to be met with skepticism in the U.S. and other countries over concerns that China's deals with developing countries are not transparent and can land heavily-indebted governments in a 'debt trap.'

China plans to revive ancient Silk Road trade route stretching from Western Europe to Southeast Asia
 
00:45
Originally published January 25, 2015 China is planning a transcontinental network of bridges, tunnels, railways and ports that will stretch from Southeast Asia to Western Europe as part of a new Silk Road trade route aimed at creating new markets for Chinese goods. China calls the proposed trade route the Silk Road Economic Belt, or “One Road, One Belt.” The land-based route will start from the Chinese city of Xi’an and continue through Urumqi in Xinjiang as well as several Central Asian cities before terminating in Venice, Italy. The maritime portion of the Silk Road route begins in Venice, Italy and travels down Africa’s northeastern coast to Mombasa in Kenya. The shipping route continues through the Maldives and a massive Chinese-backed Colombo Port City in Sri Lanka before passing through Southeast Asia and ending in Fuzhou, China. Since Chinese President Xi Jinping entered office in March 2013, he and Premier Li Keqiang have traveled to countries on the historic Silk Road using the planned trade route as a major talking point at official meetings. Capitalizing on increasing internationalization of the renminbi, China has offered low-cost financing to all participating countries so that they can develop the infrastructure necessary for the global venture. Most of the funding for the ambitious plan comes from a $40 billion Silk Road Development Fund and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. As China continues to expand its trade network across the world, it has largely ignored the environmental and social impacts of its plans. China’s plans may also do little to appease existing suspicions among many of China’s neighbors who believe China seeks territorial expansion. It is clear that while China believes other countries will also gain from the trade route, China’s ultimate goal is most likely to achieve greater economic, political and cultural influence in countries on the new Silk Road.
