Why frequent confusion about China's Belt & Road Initiative?
Answer: Failure to understand Chinese domestic politics

At @ForeignAffairs I highlight 2⃣domestic drivers 🚘 of #BRI #BeltandRoad

The confusion surrounding BRI defies a stereotype of China’s leadership as strategic and coherent.

Because China is an autocracy, many assume that its leaders formulate farsighted grand strategies, which subordinates work to faithfully execute.

🇨🇳 Chinese regime is FAR FROM COHERENT

National agendas are formulated at top & proclaimed by leaders...

Yet implementation is left to a litany of committees, ministries & local governments, tasked with translating grand vision into concrete policies and projects

#Cina, navi da guerra di #Pechino in #Africa

La Cina è vicina.

L'inaspettato volto umano della #Cina che sta "colonizzando" l'#Africa.
#Pechino non è solo il primo investitore nel Continente africano. Sono un centinaio le #Ong impegnate nel sociale.

La #Cina è vicina.

L'#Africa è già una colonia cinese.
Le multinazionali di #Pechino proseguono indisturbate la conquista del continente nero. Con un piano di investimenti da oltre 60 miliardi di dollari. E scarso rispetto per i diritti dei lavoratori

Word that @WhiteHouse plans to nominate #DavidMalpass to run the @WorldBank has several implications, which I'll touch on in this thread.
First, Bank staff will reel from the widespread frustration many felt w/Jim Kim's "big ideas" and reform agendas, now likely to be shred.

Second, Malpass shares many of ideas forwarded by GWBush-appointed @WorldBank leader Wolfowicz, including disdain for globalization, dislike of typically liberal development programs, and little respect for the expertise of Bank economists. He's on record anti-#WTO .

Third, Malpass is cut more from the cloth of Reagan than #Trump , which in the scheme of things is good news. But he shares @POTUS disdain for Xi's #beltandroad economic scheme and sees China as a threat. This could set the WB in >er competition w/China Development Bank.
