BRI will help realize 'African Dream'

President Xi Jinping proposed the Belt and Road Initiative five years ago to bridge the development gaps among countries, improve peoples' living standards and promote sustainable, shared development. This makes the initiative a global cooperation network that connects countries by air, land, sea and cyberspace, and extends beyond the Eurasian continent to Africa and Latin America.

Building infrastructure is the first priority of the Belt and Road Initiative, as the world suffers from poor infrastructure. In particular, the West (including the United States) lacks proper, modern infrastructure because private capital has no interest in investing in infrastructure. The reason: infrastructure does not make money, in the short term at least.

But China is willing to invest in infrastructure, because it thinks long term.
