Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)

China and Botswana have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The MoU was signed by the visiting Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Botswana counterpart Lemogang Kwape on behalf of the two governments after their talks in Gaborone.

According to Wang Yi, the BRI is an important international cooperation initiative and a public product provided by China to the international community. “The focus is to help developing countries strengthen infrastructure construction, better realize connectivity and enhance their independent development capabilities,” he said.

He further added that, the MoU makes Botswana the 46th partner country in Africa in BRI cooperation. “This year coincides with the 46th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Botswana, which is a beautiful symbol. The joint construction of BRI will provide new opportunities for the two countries to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation, expand new fields, open up new prospects, help Botswana’s infrastructure construction and national modernization process, and better benefit the two peoples, said the Foreign Minister.

Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi and Minister of International Affairs and Cooperation Lemogang Kwape both stressed that this is new progress in China-Botswana relations and will provide new impetus for the cooperation between the two countries.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
