Uncle Sam is using the Western media to to scare developing countries from joining BRI at ALL cost...

  Actually the US is telling them to 'Be Afraid; Be very Afraid' of China’s Belt and Road Initiative...

In reality, it's uncle Sam being afraid of BRI, simply using it as a counter strategy to hide his his fear of being left behind.
One can see clearly by watching his behavior in Venezuela and Iran...
   Desperation is taking over and even the 5 eyes starting to distance themselves from such a rot...
       BRI is not an existential threat to the United States,  not even an imminent threat if he learns how to cooperate with the Middle Kingdom...

One key-success element China must be conscious with is refusing WASTEFUL WHITE ELEPHANT PROJECTS inside and outside China along the BRI.

This doesn't bode well for BRI. For the BRI to be successful it must be seen as:
(i)   Intelligent
(ii)  Useful
(iii) Foresighted

If an initiative is seen as wasteful and unintelligent, slowly the entire initiative will be branded as wasteful and stupid. Who in the right mind wants to subscribe to stupid things?

Generally the Chinese do not see far enough. One problem crops up, they fire-fight that one problem. For a project to be successful, there must be holistic planning. That's why the analytical industry is vital for China.

From the inception of an idea, there must be analysis to study why is the project needed, who will it serve, how will it be done, who will do it, how to finance it, how to market and make it worth the while, what non-profitable purposes that it serves etc. and not just from one angle but from several angles that will definitely include the host country, participating countries etc. There is also a need to analyse the publcity, how to project the image of that project, how to win support, if successful how to advertise it etc.

So its a huge industry for the BRI if China knows how to make use of it without waste. It doesn't mean if the money is not China's the project can become wasteful. If it is, then the negative goodwill flows back to China.

For China the BRI is also about building a closer community between China, Central Asia, South East Asia and the Pacific Nations. How the BRI can be translated into a project that belongs to all depends on how China passes on some initiatives to others. For example Philippines can take the initiative to build networks into South America, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. get the Filipinos involved. Then in Central Asia, maybe Kyrgyzstan can run parallel projects between itself with Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan etc. which China doesn't fund but will help Kyrgyzstan to raise funds fron say Russia and India.

When the ownership is spread out, it is tough for trouble making nations like US to disrupt good projects. A well spread ownership will encourage greater support for the BRI. After all Asia should not listen too much to an US who has spent the last 50 years bombing people and pouring agent orange into other countries without paying the due compensation.

Porsche on track for southern China via Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)...

   Following a successful trial, Porsche will use rail to move 11% of its factory-new models between Germany and Chongqing in south-west China, equal to 8,800 vehicles from across the Porsche range.
   Last year China accounted for 31% of all Porsche deliveries, the company’s highest-volume individual market with around 80,000 sports cars sold. They were all transported by sea...
   The 11,000km route, which takes 18 days, travels eastward through Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan to Chongqing.
  FRANKFURT, May 4 (Xinhua) -- German luxury auto manufacturer Porsche has resorted to rail transport, or China-Europe Railway Express, for its transcontinental logistics since April, German media dpa reported on Saturday.
   According to Porsche's plan, 11 percent of its factory-new sports cars will be exported through the about 11,000-km-long rail route to southwest China.
    The trains made 6,363 trips in 2018, surging 73 percent from 2017, according to the China Railway Corporation.
