The Atlantic Solidarity Amid The Belt and Road - A talk with Zack Cooper and Kristine Lee

In recent years, China has become a major economic and diplomatic player in Europe through what it calls "One Belt, One Road." With Italy the first major Western power to sign a Belt and Road memorandum with Beijing, it is clear that China's political and economic influence is expanding into Europe. As Rome looks to partner with Beijing on the Belt and Road Initiative, it would do well to learn from the challenges associated with earlier Chinese infrastructure projects. Join Zack Cooper and Kristine Lee, co-authors of a new report on grading China's Belt and Road by the Center for a New American Security (CNAS).
