China Invests in Africa As Grand Foundation for Its Belt-and-Road Master Plan

Visitors look at the electronic panel displaying Chinese President Xi Jinping’s signature “One Belt, One Road” foreign policy plan at an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up at the National Museum of China in Beijing, Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018. Already the No. 1 market for its Asian neighbors, China is promoting its “Belt and Road” initiative to expand commerce by building ports, railways and other infrastructure across 65 countries from the South Pacific through Asia to Europe and Africa, but the initiative has come under fire for imposing unsustainable debt burdens on developing countries and lack of transparency.
