Part of the Politics and Development of Contemporary China book series (PDCC)


This book concerns globalization and the Belt and Road, also called the modern Silk Road. The question of infrastructure is sometimes criticized by those who do not like the new Silk Road. Arbitration and English language are essential for the development of China’s globalization in the twenty-first century. The opportunities and risks of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) will be studied in this chapter.
