Does China Want to Take Over the World with the Belt and Road Initiative?

In 2013, China launched its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative. It’s often described as a 21st century silk road to connect Asia, Africa, and Europe. But the multibillion dollar plan is also considered a state-backed campaign to dominate the world.

Today we discuss China’s global ambitions, how they’re executing them, and what it means for the rest of the world.

Today’s guest is geopolitical strategist John Sitilides from Trilogy Advisors on Zooming In with Simone Gao.
