CHINA-INDIA: ANOTHER BID TO GET INDIA TO JOIN BRI

Reacting to India's proposed US$ 60 billion plan to build 100 airports in the next 10-15 years, China's state-owned Global Times on September 5, again recommended that India "embrace the China-proposed Belt and Road (B&R) initiative  as it would help the South Asian country's massive airport plan."  Lou Chunhao, an expert with the China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said "India  should seek cooperation and help from China as the latter has relevant rich experience and could provide capital and technology supports." Zhao Gancheng, Director of the Center for Asia-Pacific Studies at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies, echoed the view adding "the Indian government may have trouble finding funding for the whole project, and may need to seek foreign assistance. China could be a reasonable source to provide funding."
