China

Insight and analysis of China’s evolving geo-economic strategy and policy across the globe and across sectors. We focus on China’s global footprint in the Belt and Road Initiative, the developmental impacts of its trade and investment, and its role in bilateral and multilateral finance. Looking forward, we see to understand how China’s modernisation and superpower ambitions will shape its global role to come.

Rooted in China’s domestic economic and security woes, the BRI can have transformative impacts for participating countries, as well as risks.

China and sustainable development

China’s growing role in trade, investment and in development finance put it in a unique position to shape global development outcomes and the SDGs.
