China’s infrastructure initiative, part 1: Implications for Eurasia, the US and Europe

China’s One Belt, One Road initiative aims to transform much of its complex network of bilateral relations into a single, regional system. This overarching programme will affect the country’s political and economic ties with some 65 countries and more than 4 billion people. For years to come, it will make Eurasia the central focus of China’s diplomacy and its security policy, as well as the most important destination for its foreign investments. The strategy should ameliorate China’s growing structural economic problems and bolster political stability both at home and in the neighbourhood. It also presents a tremendous opportunity for the United States and Europe – but will they seize it?
