Written by Dr. Gal Luft, “Silk Road 2.0: US Strategy Toward China’s Belt and Road Initiative” explores how the United States should engage with China’s tremendous infrastructure-building project, and recommends the United States pursue a strategy of constructive participation. 

This strategy is built on five pillars:

  1. Acknowledge, Engage, Adjust;
  2. Articulate Red Lines;
  3. Carve a Role for the United States;
  4. Integrate the BRI into the Framework of Overall US-China Relations; and
  5. Present America’s Own Vision for Infrastructure Development.
