Belt Road Initiative: view from across the border
Suleri, Dr. Abid Qaiyum | April 2017
A latest addition in this list is China's Belt Road Initiative (BRI) of which China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is an important part. While many in Pakistan look at BRI's potential of infrastructural and economic integration as an unprecedented opportunity for regional transformation, many in India are sceptic about Chinese agenda of transcontinental and transoceanic extension and perceives it as China's tool for economic dominance. BRI has two major nodes in South Asia. The first one is CPEC, and the second is China, Bangladesh, Myanmar, India Economic Corridor (CBMI). While there is fervour about CPEC in Pakistan, India has still not formally participated in China's initiative due to certain concerns.
