WIKIPEDIA: The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI, or B&R), formerly known as One Belt One Road (Chinese: 一带一路) or OBOR for short, is a global infrastructure development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013 to invest in nearly 70 countries and international organizations. It is considered a centerpiece of Chinese Communist Party general secretary Xi Jinping's foreign policy. Xi Jinping originally announced the strategy during official visits to Indonesia and Kazakhstan in 2013. "Belt" refers to the overland routes for road and rail transportation, called "the Silk Road Economic Belt"; whereas "road" refers to the sea routes, or the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. It was incorporated into the Constitution of the People's Republic of China in 2017. The Chinese government calls the initiative "a bid to enhance regional connectivity and embrace a brighter future". Some observers see it as a plan for Chinese world domination through a China-centered global trading network. The project has a target completion date of 2049, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the People's Republic of China.
