  Oct 20, 2023

Indian approach towards Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)



What is BRI?

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a global infrastructure development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013. It aims to improve connectivity and cooperation between China and partner countries, primarily through the construction of roads, railways, ports, and power plants.it is a geopolitical tool for global domination.

India's approach towards BRI

India has declined to join the BRI, citing concerns about sovereignty and debt. India is particularly concerned about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which is a flagship BRI project that passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Challenges

The BRI has been criticized for its lack of transparency, its focus on Chinese companies, and its potential to create debt traps for developing countries.

Why is India boycotting BRI forum?

India is boycotting the BRI forum for the third consecutive time to highlight its stand on the sovereignty issues in the controversial CPEC, which is being laid through the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Conclusion

India's approach towards BRI is cautious and critical. India is concerned about the potential negative implications of BRI for its own sovereignty and security.

Here are some additional details about India's approach towards BRI:

India has expressed concern that the BRI could be used by China to advance its military and strategic interests.

India is also concerned that the BRI could lead to increased Chinese debt for developing countries, making them more vulnerable to Chinese influence.

India has proposed its own alternative to the BRI, called the Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative (IPOI). The IPOI is focused on developing infrastructure and connectivity in the Indo-Pacific region in a cooperative and transparent manner.

India's decision to boycott the BRI forum is a reflection of its deep concerns about the initiative. It remains to be seen whether India's approach will change in the future.
