Reviews

“As BRI is quickly emerging as one of the most important global development strategies of the 21st century, it has become imperative for all stakeholders in both mature and emerging markets to understand the opportunities it offers. This edited volume provides a timely collection of studies which reflects the complexity of the emergence of the BRI, and will be of interest to many, given the general need to further understand what is increasingly perceived as a game-changer in development discourse.” (Eddy S. Fang, Associate Professor and Head of Economics Division, Xi’an Jiaotong – Liverpool University, China)

“Syed and Ying should be congratulated for such a timely, informative and important book. They have brought key issues surrounding the BRI to the forefront of our thinking, making this book a pertinent read for those analysing China’s current economic climate. This is an excellent book indeed.” (Dennis K.J. Lin, University Distinguished Professor, The Pennsylvania State University, USA)

“This book is a very welcome introduction to a platform of largely blank spaces. It highlights the issues of transparency and accountability, of ethics and governance norms and of misgivings and resolve. It also highlights the fact that CPEC is a product of a Chinese growth strategy.” (Kaiser Bengali, Former Advisor to Chief Minister, Sindh)
