China’s BRI Globalization

Jean A. Berlie, Manuel Benard


The Chinese globalization does come naturally from the historical Silk Road which has a long history of 2000 years. The ancient Silk Road became famous again with Macau, the first point of globalization in the seventeenth century. At present, the BRI is essential to develop globalization since 2013 and was renamed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2017.

The Greater Bay Area, called before 2017 the Pearl River Delta, was well known in the past with Canton, now Guangzhou. The global Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, continues to be important economically and financially. Macau (SAR), part of China since 1999, remains historically essential and its Casino Capitalism will continue to be important. It was the first gaming city of the world before 2012. China, the second economic power of the world, is really global in the 21st century, the BRI is essential for its success.

Research, reading, and interviews on globalization are key elements to understand what is the present Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
