Washington has launched several projects to compete with China’s BRI, but these initiatives suffer from US lack of consistency.
In November 2019, the USA, Japan and Australia launched the Blue Dot network. Can this new initiative compete with China’s Belt and Road?
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on July 30, 2018, at the Indo-Pacific Business Forum the upcoming launch of an infrastructure development plan for Asia.
Australia, the United States, India and Japan are reportedly discussing the formation of a competing project for China’s Belt and Road initiative. The best option for the EU is to join China’s Belt and Road Initiative to better protect its interests.
