China regards its Belt and Road initiative as an international one and invites other countries to join it in building infrastructures under its Belt and Road initiative.
As mentioned in my previous posts, such infrastructures, especially power plants, may be profitable and facilitate establishment of foreign enterprises. Moreover, infrastructures contribute to economic development that may expand Germany and Japan’s market there.
As a result, Europe’s largest economy Germany and Japan, Asia’s largest economy except China, have expressed their interest in the initiative.
True enough, according to Asian Review’s report “Japan makes infrastructure push into Southeast Asia”, Japan wants and is making preparations to invest in infrastructures in Cambodia and the Philippines, which, first of all, may benefit China as both countries are close to China.
No matter how hard the US has been trying to demonise China by describing China’s Belt and Road as “colonialism” or “debt diplomacy or trap”, China’s win-win cooperation brings prosperity to both China and the countries concerned. It is an initiative for the benefit of the international community with shared destiny as a whole.
The US is welcome to join China if it is willing. However, the US has conducted and wanted to conduct regime changes in the world in order to control other countries with the pretext of establishing democracy there. What it has done has resulted in domestic conflicts and even chaos in the countries affected. Libya is a typical example.
However, such regime changes do not benefit other developed countries such as Germany and Japan. Seeing the benefit of profits, investment and market expansion, they will, after all, join China in building infrastructures where necessary and feasible. The US will be isolated if it keeps on its opposition.
