Bangladesh had asked for Chinese funds for nine new projects worth US$ 6.4 billion, including for a new port and a bridge. China has emerged as Bangladesh’s largest development partner in recent years and has pumped in funds for several infrastructure projects, a growth in ties that would be closely monitored by India.

  • Chinese leaders will seek to protect their country’s BRI investments in Belarus, regardless of how the crisis evolves in that country. China’s investments in Belarus are of special significance to the BRI because of Belarus’ position as a potential gateway to European markets, which China views as the ultimate prize in its BRI plans. China’s largest investment in Belarus is the Great Stone Industrial Park, China’s largest overseas development project. It has already attracted more than $1 billion in investment from at least 56 foreign companies.
