  • China’s top economic planner (the National Development and Reform Commission) has warned that the impact of Covid-19 and increased political risks in countries taking part in the Belt and Road Initiative are among the main challenges the multibillion-dollar project faces in the next five years. It identified changes to global governance and trade systems, the ongoing rivalry between China and the US, and growth in emerging markets as the most important factors affecting the project. Moreover, “some BRI countries have long term high geopolitical risks and certain regions have seen an escalation in conflict,” the report said.
