The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is not just about building rails and bridges; equally important is the building of bridges of friendship and understanding among peoples of different countries, that they may come together and build a better world for all, free from the current climate of misunderstandings, fear, and misperceptions, that plague peoples from different nations!

Well spoken png,
Keep an eye on Western media, they're 90% of the problem...
"The US has declared its opposition to the BRI and sponsored a political and media campaign to discourage developing countries and its allies from joining it. The US and Western refrain of China’s so-called debt-trap diplomacy, stories of corruption and failed projects have been repeated as nauseam although the basis for such reports has been credibly refuted by the parties concerned.
The admonitions regarding the debt owed to China are particularly galling given that over 90 per cent of developing country debt is owed to Western countries and institutions. Servicing this debt consumes around 30pc of annual hard currency outflows from these developing countries. This debt is due to flawed Western development ‘aid’ which has contributed only marginally to the development of recipient countries."
