China’s foreign ministry announced the upcoming third Belt and Road Forum set for October 17-18 in Beijing, celebrating a decade of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
Created by Chinese President Xi Jinping, the BRI seeks to establish vast infrastructure and energy networks, bridging Asia with Africa and Europe through an intricate web of land and maritime pathways. This endeavor, which China views as a modern rendition of the historical Silk Road to stimulate international commerce, has been scrutinized by some as a means for China to further its geopolitical and economic dominance.
Despite this, the initiative has garnered collaboration from over 150 countries and multiple international entities.
