Chinese President Xi Jinping, this past week, showcased his hugely ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to heads of state and government from 29 countries in Beijing.

 

President Xi Jinping has just hosted a mega show to sell China’s massive Eurasian connectivity scheme, known variously as the One Belt One Road (OBOR), or the Belt Road Initiative (BRI), to the world.

 

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation concluded successfully yesterday with fruitful results.

India has undertaken an uncharacteristically bold foreign policy move by refusing to participate in the One Belt One Road (OBOR) summit in Beijing, meant to be China’s grand coming out globalisation party.
