WHAT IS HAPPENING IN GEOPOLITICS? MIDDLE EAST:

BELT AND ROAD:

  • China is happy about the Abraham Accords and the GCC crisis coming to an end. Though China was not involved in either development, China benefits from Israel having normalized ties with Arab countries in the Gulf. An Israel integrated into its own region provides yet another important access point to the Mediterranean, especially if and when connecting infrastructure comes into effect. The European Union is China’s largest trading partner, making the Mediterranean Sea a major endpoint in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Regarding to the end of the GCC dispute, with Qatar presumably coming back into the fold, it will likely enjoy a corresponding spike in Chinese projects.
