Has China’s Belt and Road Initiative proven to be a debt trap? 

In this Asia 360 segment, Jeff Reeves (2:14) – vice-president of research at the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada – examines the outcomes of China’s second Belt and Road forum. He also explores what has changed since the idea was first announced years ago. This includes more membership, more money and a consideration for green development. Plus: the role Canada can play in the trillion-dollar project.
