BRI - View from MENA
Na­tions across the Middle East and North Africa have been keen to par­ti­cip­ate in China’s Belt and Road Ini­ti­at­ive. Rail­ways, ports, roads, power pro­jects and even smart cit­ies have all seen sig­ni­fic­ant Chinese in­vest­ment. The re­gion forms an im­port­ant part of China’s trade route jig­saw, with the Gulf in par­tic­u­lar a stra­tegic cross­roads, while its oil and LNG re­main cru­cial to ful­filling China’s en­ergy re­quire­ments.
