What does China's Belt and Road Initiative mean for Europe? | DW News

2019 saw the continued growth of China’s global-influence, despite a slowing economy and US President Donald Trump’s tariffs. Xi Jinping’s China now has the largest diplomatic corps in the world engaged in soft power projects, a reflection of its increasingly-vocal protection of its interests and its growing investments around the world. Many of those investments are part of the so-called Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is a series of major infrastructure projects designed to smooth trade with the nation. China has been rapidly building its New Silk Road since 2013. Beijing has invested in harbors, railways, roads and power infrastructure in more than 60 countries. With this network, China wants to secure export markets, as well as access to raw materials. For a long time, China has shown a keen interest in Germany and Europe, investing heavily in the Balkans. China is courting German companies developing innovative technologies which could also be interesting for the Chinese market. According to a study by the Bertelsmann foundation, technologies particularly in demand are automotive drive systems, energy systems, biomedical technology and machine engineering.

  1. I'm 100% sure the Chinese are not interested in anything but money. Evil plan? Colonization? Culture brainwash?Man those take efforts! And time.And money. All China wants is to get money and get rich. I don't even think anything else is worth getting.

  2. I remember watching a documentary like 10 years ago, and I remember in this documentary, there was a famous American dude way back in the 1940s or 30s, he visited Asia and when he came home, he said to the media that Asians will rule the world some day or at least the power will shift to ASIA in the future. I don't know, maybe he was right. I wish I can remember his name, dammit.

  3. You're right, man! We want a lot of money! Very big house! Cool car! All practical things! The Chinese concept of thousands of years is inseparable from four words: safety, residence, happiness, career! Chinese parents want their children to be stable. This kind of thinking lasts for thousands of years!

  4. Chinese intentions are the same as the U.S. and E.U., they’re just more friendly and less punitive. It’s a good strategy to invest in future friendships: build their infrastructure, don’t attach too many conditions, and be ambitious.

  5. This channel has no credibility . Instead of choosing 1 person from the 1.4 billion people in China for the interview , this channel purposely ask a person from Taiwan for the interview, proving that this an anti China channel

  8. Asking a person from Taiwan for an interview about China and treating him as an expert , is like asking an arab from saudi Arabia for an interview about Iran and assuming that arab is an impartial expert on Iran. This proves that this channel from the fraudster and scammer DW is so biased against China .
