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.
