BRI Provides Immense Benefits

The benefits of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) will span the entire world. The Arctic and Latin America recently pledged their commitment to the initiative, leaving the US, Canada, Japan, and India as the only major economies that have not joined. Though the idea of the BRI was initially met with skepticism, overtime, plans have gotten even more ambitious. Such a great vision requires the proper leadership, and the Chinese government has demonstrated its ability to lead and open up while countries such as the US are increasingly inward-looking.
