Since 2013, China has initiated a building and development process based on increased investments in infrastructure at the international level. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) based on promotion of trade, infrastructure, and commercial associations with 65 countries in Asia, Africa, and Europe, was announced as the ‘road of peace, and prosperity,’ and from then on it continues to characterize China’s positioning in the international context. The BRI is an initiative that tends to revive China’s ancient trade routes, through development and investment in infrastructure in two directions: Eurasia, which represents the Economic Belt, and the Indo-Pacific which is referred as the Maritime Silk Road. Since the launch of the BRI, China has persistently devoted investments to building ports, highways, high-speed rails, land bridges, as well as digital connectivity centers across the countries that joined the initiative.
