One-Belt One-Road

  From OBOR blog of BHP:

Under President Xi’s sponsorship, serious money began to be ear-marked for projects under the OBOR banner, highlighted by the US$40 billion “Silk Road Fund”. A “Leading Group”2  reporting directly to the State Council was established. China is also the cornerstone investor in a new multilateral lending institution, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), which has already funded a number of major projects in OBOR countries.3

From a purely economic standpoint, OBOR provides a signal and a framework for Chinese firms to export their growing expertise in infrastructure, manufacturing and construction. The financing of OBOR projects offers an avenue for diversifying China’s foreign assets away from low yielding sovereign bonds to higher yielding real assets. In the second wave, the increasing prosperity of recipient countries, where shortages of basic infrastructure4 are a major impediment to improving the livelihoods of their citizens, will provide expanding markets for Chinese goods. China’s heavy industries, many of which are experiencing excess capacity after a decade of very strong investment sentiment, will enjoy having an additional outlet for their wares in both waves of this journey. This could help soften the blow of the inevitable restructuring that domestic economic rebalancing will entail. 

 1 OBOR is now being referred to by many Chinese official sources as simply the “Belt and Road Initiative”.

2 “Leading groups” are an important tool of very high level decision making within the Chinese government structure, created to advance key policy objectives.

3 The AIIB was established with authorised capital of US$100 billion; it is headquartered in Beijing; and China enjoys 26.06% of the voting rights. China has 4.59% of the votes at the World Bank versus the US’ 16.45%. China has 5.46% of the vote at the Asian Development Bank (ADB), versus Japan’s 12.798%. Other funding vehicles worth noting are the New Development Bank, also known as the “BRICs Bank”, the China Development Bank and the Export-Import Bank of China.

4 The Asian Development Bank estimates that Asia requires US$26 trillion in infrastructure investment by 2030.

(Source: CGTN)
 
The upcoming Belt and Road Forum will be held in Beijing in the middle of next month, and will be the highest level forum since the Belt and Road initiative proposed in 2013.Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi (C) and Wang Xiaotao (L), deputy head of the National Development and Reform Commission, attend a press conference on the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing, capital of China, April 18, 2017. The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation will be held from May 14 to 15 in Beijing and Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend the opening ceremony and host the round table summit of the leaders, Wang Yi said on Tuesday. At the invitation of Xi, 28 heads of state and government leaders will attend the forum. (Xinhua/Xing Guangli)

A press release on Tuesday confirmed that 28 heads of state and government leaders will attend the forum. Seen on the list are Russian President Vladimir Putin, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

At the same time, over 80 leaders of international organizations are also expected to attend, including UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, and the Managing Director of IMF Christine Lagarde.

Chinese President Xi Jinping is expected to deliver a keynote speech at the opening ceremony. He will also host a roundtable meeting on policy and strategic development. Various topics will be discussed during the forum, including infrastructure, economic cooperation, and energy resources.

"The Belt and Road initiative aims to increase international cooperation on the basic principles of mutual discussion, mutual construction and mutual sharing. Entering its fourth year, the initiative has made great progress and entered the phase of practical cooperation. The purpose of holding this forum in Beijing is to collect the intelligence of all parties involved, summarize the successful experiences, plan the new trajectory and create this cooperation platform that will open a new chapter for the initiative," Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said.

Belt and Road Forum to open in Beijing city

2017-04-14     China Daily     visits:1

By Andrew Moody

 

One month and counting.

 

More than 20 heads of state and government, as well as 1,200 delegates from countries around the world will descend on Beijing for the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which will be held on May 14 and 15.

 

It's a landmark event for the Chinese initiative, launched by President Xi Jinping in 2013.

 

Since then, the initiative-which consists of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road-has resulted in cooperative agreements with China from more than 40 countries and international organizations, and Chinese companies have invested some $50 billion in mainly infrastructure projects.

 

One of the aims of the forum is to move the concept from being a China-led initiative involving bilateral agreements to a multilateral concept that will help foster greater global connectivity.

 

Xi made his ambitions for the Belt and Road Initiative clear at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in January, when he defended globalization and called for countries to work together to tackle the world's many uncertainties.

 

"We should join hands and rise to the challenge," he said. "History is created by the brave. Let us boost confidence, take action and march arm-in-arm toward a bright future."

 

The main tangible elements of the initiative so far are the Silk Road Fund, for which the Chinese government pledged $40 billion in 2014 for investment in countries along the routes, and also the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, whose founding members include many Western countries, including the UK, France and Germany, along with leading Asian countries such as India, Pakistan and Vietnam.

 

Hugh White, a professor of strategic studies at Australian National University who was an adviser to former Australian prime minister Bob Hawke, believes the forum will be about making clear that the initiative is for everyone, not just China.

 

"For it to work, it has got to be something that has wider ownership and acceptance than just being a Beijing initiative," he said.

 

"It has the potential to be something very significant. The countries participating will be involved in creating a vision and framework for globalization for the next few decades. So it is of immense significance."

 

Joint development

 

Tom Miller, senior Asia analyst at Gavekal Research and the author of a new book, China's Asian Dream: Empire Building Along the New Silk Road, agrees the aim will be to make clear that the initiative is very much about joint development.

 

"The mistake you can make about the Belt and Road Initiative is to think it is purely a Chinese project," he said. "It can't be just that, because whatever China is doing, it is doing with enterprises in other countries. So it has to be about joint development."

 

Edward Tse, founder and CEO of management consultancy Gao Feng Advisory, believes the Belt and Road is still at the formative stage, and the forum will include a progress review and provide a forward vision.

 

"It is critical for the whole initiative. These leaders are coming together to discuss where to go next. Belt and Road started off as a concept, but the concept changed very quickly into some very tangible ideas like the AIIB and the Silk Road Fund and some very real infrastructure projects," he said.

 

"We don't have 100 percent clarity as to what it is or will evolve into; on the other hand, the participants have a lot of aligned interests and will want to be part of it."

 

Some critics of the initiative have seen it as China trying to exert greater geopolitical influence.

 

Shen Dingli, professor of international relations and executive dean of the Institute of International Studies at Fudan University, rejects this notion.

 

"We have no geopolitical agenda. It is not a strategy. At first it was bilateral, but it can also be China working with two or more countries, and it can also include projects in which China is not involved at all," he said.

 

"If they want to be involved, Japan can also bid for projects and be part of it. It is a global interconnectivity initiative. China does not have to be involved at all, but it is the country that initiated it, that's all."

 

Not a Chinese tool

 

Shi Yinhong, director of the Center for American Studies at Renmin University of China and one of China's leading foreign policy experts, says it would simply not work if it was seen as a Chinese geopolitical tool.

 

"If it was just about China's geopolitical interests, then other members would become suspicious and have their own concerns," he says.

 

"It is certainly not the message that China wants to put across. China, of course, does have many geopolitical interests, but it sees them as entirely separate from this initiative."

 

With the new administration in the United States having a protectionist agenda, the Belt and Road does reaffirm China's commitment to a new form of globalization based on connectivity.

 

Sun Yongfu, former director-general of the European Department of the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, believes this will be one of the strongest messages from the forum.

 

"I believe the Chinese government would like to use this platform to send a strong message that China supports globalization," he said.

 

"China is open to different ideas. It does not just want to put its own ideas forward, but also wants to listen to others. It is about what countries can do in cooperation with each other, jointly, bilaterally and multilaterally."

 

Wang Huiyao, president and founder of the Center for China and Globalization, China's largest independent think tank, said the forum offers the opportunity for some form of restatement of the importance of globalization.

 

"It could prove to be the new driving force behind globalization and provide the necessary impetus to stimulate the global economy and provide economic growth for the future. It has been three years since it was first proposed, and now is the right time to get to the nitty-gritty."

 

One of the benefits to China of the Belt and Road Initiative might also be to provide new export markets for its heavy industries that supply the construction sector, now that the domestic economy is slowing down.

 

"In that way it is a business initiative," said Shen at Fudan Universty. "Selling cement, iron and steel and overcapacity that we don't need at home. People are losing jobs in China and it is a way for them to continue to be employed."

 

Tse, also author of China's Disrupters: How Alibaba, Xiaomi, Tencent, and Other Companies Are Changing the Rules of Business, thinks this is overplayed.

 

"There is a lot of business involved, but to equate the Belt and Road Initiative as a way for China to export its overcapacity does not make sense economically. You can't really export products like cement. You cannot realistically transport it from Northeast China to Eastern Europe, as just one example. It is a very local business."

 

Peter Frankopan, director of the Centre for Byzantine Research at Oxford University and author of the best-selling book The Silk Roads, said the initiative has created major interest in the countries that were along the ancient Silk Road.

 

"Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the Central Asian republics have all started to think about their economic futures in terms of these connections," he said.

 

"The reason there is so much excitement about these routes is that they have existed before. You only have to look back in history to see how all these connections and pathways were made.

 

"If they have existed before, it can work again. It will lead to a greater level of ease of distributing goods and services along the routes, which will make the whole process cheaper and quicker."

 

Vision recognized

 

Rana Mitter, director of the Dickson Poon China Centre at Oxford University, believes many in Europe now see the potential of these new connections.

 

"If you look at southern Europe and look at the way Chinese investment in Greece, Bulgaria and Romania is rocketing up, these could be more organically connected by this new initiative. I also think Turkey is important in all of this," he said.

 

The China historian and author of China's War with Japan, 1937-1945: The Struggle for Survival, however, believes there is so far less understanding of the potential benefits in Western Europe.

 

"If we are talking of the Chancellery in Berlin or the presidential palace in Paris, where there is the distraction of the French election, I think this is the case. There is a certain amount of interest in Brexit Britain about the potential opportunities," Mitter said.

 

Tse believes the Belt and Road offers a real opportunity for the UK after it leaves the European Union.

 

"The UK will gravitate more toward China, as its relationship with Europe is uncertain. From the Chinese investor standpoint there are a lot of potential deals to be made in the UK. With the lower level of the pound, a lot of potential targets are looking pretty reasonable right now," Tse said.

 

Sun, the former Ministry of Commerce European department head, believes many who have signed cooperation agreements will be looking for ideas about their own economic development at the Beijing forum.

 

"China initially learned a lot from the developed world in terms of technology, setting up special economic zones in the late 1970s and being open to ideas," he said. "It now has 34 years of experience to share with others."

There are 4 future history endings to the 21st C. As my daughter is 9 year old: I find the first three of these compound futures utterly unacceptable and invite you to mail me at info@worldcitizen.tv if you do too:

Dinosaur: means the whole human species will be as dead as the dodo. Tell us who's "death of birth" story interests you most. I'm a fan of Chairman Ray Anderson, and this video. In it, he explains not only how all corporations -as key systems in  productive and demanding networks of human relationships - can help humanity prevent the "dinosaur ending" but also how those corporations who value human life will compound the most profits too. It's a myth that sustainability business investments don't do well by doing good. But what is required is consistent investment through time as all entreprenurial and economic systems are intended be, not exercises in how much can you reap or rape from the world every last quarter. All the true economists have mapped how healthy societies beget strong economies, NOT  vice versa.

Shark: means that there will be a world of less than a billion people, most enslaved to the greediest and nastiest men. It is not for nothing that the Spectre villains in James Bond films kept pet sharks. Sharks sense how to make a human or financial killing at many miles - they literally are the best at smelling blood as well as having  blood-thirsty greeds. I am by no means claiming that most large organisational boardrooms are populated by sharks. But as a mathematician and investigator of Unseen Wealth research I am weary of hearing over 20 years of protests that we are ignorant of the system law : if  leadership only optimises how much money speculators take out from the last quarter's spreadsheet,  the organisation's  purpose will be full of holes than a pantomime dame's leaking bucket. Worse over time what you exclude from governing a system is what you compound the destruction of. That's why any boardroom who does not want to see its business case transparently audited for sustainability henceforth swims with the sharks or is blinded by butterflies.

Butterflies tell the wrong stories about system or network models of how to map the whole before getting boxed into parts. Butterflies making system patterns sound complex or chaotic beyond human wit. Inconveniently, this gives the manager the perfect excuse to say that sytsem transformation cannot be succesful.  Their end consequence is also likely to end with less than a million beings living, but this time survivors wll all be back in the cave age.  As the world gets more interconnected, what we need to map is exactly how do get interconnected in each other's most vital compound risks or joys. We do need to prevent the next HIV from spreading virally beyond early cases especially if it is transmitted by contagious birds. Grassroots in frastructures needed little more than a primitive mobile telephone network around Tsunami coastlines to prevent deaths of thos who were 5 hours away from the wave even if those nearest the wave's origin could not have ben alerted. We need to reduce online degrees of separation to zero when the information to be passed through us humans is life critical in its flows. Conversely, there are many types of active learning that multiply value in use instead of gettin g consumed up the way in dustrial things always were. The two great untruths told by the butterfly brigade:

1) that there is one primary way of thinking or doing systems- by definition systemic approaches interface and integrate around molecular subsystems; one simple consequence of this organsiationally is a lot more interdisciplinary flows are needed for the  service economy  organsiational system to wholly empower trust and other entrepreneurial energies

2) that my life -or yours - will be impacted on the other side of the world by a butterfly flapping its wing. This ludicrous insult to logic should not however lead anyone to believe that we can lose all the world's rainforests and expect climate equilibrium to be sustained.

Lion-Child - and I would delight in hearing of other identifications, since this is the truly important story of the four and merits every type of cross-cultural rendering you all can imagine - is about the collaboration characters we will need to flourish if 6+ billion humans are to thrive. Quite a simple thing to achieve if we are as truly curious as a child, as courageous as a lioness in protecting her young, and cherish the pride in community wellbeing as much as lions do.


 

Ideas for 24 Goals for the 24 Days PowWow on will humanity invest in Sustainability in Time

I gather that some goals gave already been decided. Numbers do not denote order:
 
Activity Goals
G1 Plant 24 intercity hubs around the world using Islington hub and espian plex tools as  strawman infrastructure for local adaptation
 
G2 Demand that London's Mayor etc open up sufficient spaces in public building for 90 day summer debate of sustainability issues
 
G3 Develop a map of all hubs and learning houses - ie to include the 24 homegrown ones, and others out there eg Brazil has at least two www.catcomm.org
London has the house www.learninghouse.biz  
 
G4 Get the 24 hubs to start editing their own crisis learning travel guide that Sofia is producing 2007 version of which incidentally will include a start up map of hubs; other contents in this include Harrison Owen Open Space for children; Gandhi family debriefings from the world's largest school and 1 million oneworld alumni; challenges of starting up CIDA's free university
 
G5 How can we go beyond the learning guide to a meeting  format trialled by London and for replication in any city Learning500 (see mail of sat feb 3 addendum Sunita Gandhi)
 
G6 invite 24 days participants to nominate 15 entries of book of the 200 most trusted collaboration entrepreneurs of 2008 , with particular foci on the 7 sustainability crises which become irreversible if they're not turning round by 2012 see pic attached
 
G7 The top 4 outcome crises in the picture are a direct match with Larry Brilliant’s 4 main goals for progressing the work of google.org - how do we establish b ridges with that - he states these goals at this video minute 14 http://webcast.ucsd.edu:8080/ramgen/UCSD_TV/11645.rm
 
G8 How do we mobilise all new economists and sustainability investors around the empowerment development economics revolution Sir Nick Stern is leading which from May will be out of the London School of Economics- what London student networks already exist to interact positively with Sir Nick; how can we unite oxbridge and Indian alumni too (since eg Sir Nick's curricula is parallel to that Manmohan Singh has been pioneering since his Cambridge days in the 1950s and blends with the Entrepreneurial Revolution trilogy of my father). How do we ensure that the debate on how to spend 1% of economies to save 20% does not get greenwashed by all the old vested interests; the worst scenario being that the 1% is wholly wasted while an image of saving the climate lulls us into false security
 
G9 How could we outline the definitive entrepreneurial, peace network (open systems , biomass) curricula that all new age universities and serve the world alumni need (eg blend this with the Sir Richard Branson entrepreneur school at Cida, the India alumni of city Montessori etc)    
 
G10 How do we popularise the 4 end states of sustainability - eg Dinosaur (death of birth), Shark (1 million enslaved by a few James Bond Spectre Villains), Butterfly probably 1 million cavemen through  telling system stories the wrong way (I'll never be impacted by a butterfly's wing but could from nuclear wave or terror wave or birdflu or Greenland unhinging) , LionChild (or whatever is your identity) of 6+ billion people collaborating around a higher order system of sustainability which fairly integrates every locality into globalisation. How do we own the vocabulary so that these 4 identities become part of worldwide chat.
 
G11 How do we identify journalist for humanity who care about at least one of the 7 above crises as reaching irreversibility by 2012 if we don’t fix them now
 
G12 How do we start developing supporters clubs around collaboration entrepreneurs connecting eg all the best ideas that Yunus is using - thegreenchildren.org - a British pop-spokesgroup for Grameen; the microcreditsummit as one of the top 10 world citizen meeting formats; the extension of microcredit as the perfect concept to clean up the banking market into other concepts designed to partner trillion dollar global markets until they stop externalising destruction of each market's deepest human purpose (see trillion dollar audit game - left an early copy with you, otherwise it will emerge at http://worldcitizen.tv and is backed up by the earlier book Alan was writing with me)
