South Asia | China and the BRI Countries

Bangladesh

Bhagya Senaratne

Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Global Asia

In 2013, the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, proposed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to promote greater connectivity and cooperation among regions. From its modest beginnings, 130 countries have now partnered with the BRI. Each of these countries has a story to tell about their relations and experiences with the BRI. Therefore, this space will provide an overview of these relationships, the projects and initiatives that were launched under the BRI etc. The series of blogs and interviews commences by initially analyzing the BRI and South Asia.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh joined the Belt and Road Initiative in 2016, a delayed entry compared to other South Asian countries. Regardless of its delayed cooperation, Bangladesh has secured funding for several key infrastructure projects and avoided being caught in the ā€˜debt trapā€™ narrative. The series of blogs and interviews aims to provide a more nuanced understanding of Bangladeshā€™s commitments with the BRI.
