There are a ton of huge projects in the world right now. Most of what we cover are huge cities that are slightly based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s African paradise known as Wakanda. While all of that is scifi and cool, there’s one massive project that looks towards the past, and the less attractive problem of rebuilding roads internationally to create a new trade route. Just like the ancient Silk Road.
China is looking to build a new Silk Road. One that stretches through most of Asia and aims to create a new era of trade with China at the front of the train. By all accounts, this project could reshape international trade as we know it, but not for cheap at all. In fact, it seems like the nation is betting everything on this project making it into an even bigger empire than it already is. A pretty lofty aim indeed.
Not everyone is excited about this project though. Some, who aren’t very fond of China’s policies both in and outside of its country, are scared that this project could massively increase China’s reputation across the world. Something that The Office’s Michael Scott would be truly terrified by.
Then there’s the flip side where this project is so unbelievably expensive that many believe that there’s no way it could possibly succeed. We’ll just have to wait to find out.
So what is the massive project from China and how many trillions will it cost? Only one way to find out!
