On Chinese coal-fired power generation projects in Pakistan

ASTRID SKALA-KUHMANN
SPECIAL ADVISOR, GERMAN AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION (GIZ)
Report of the 8th Europe-China Forum and Policy & Practice Roundtable

"China is building a new world order with the BRI. The new institutions such as the new development bank and an arbitration system are located in China. China is implementing the BRI bilaterally and it looks like the BRI is not embedded in the current multilateral system."

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.
