The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a $US trillion project to develop a network of railways, ports and special economic zones spanning more than 60 countries and generating 40 per cent of global GDP.  BRI would connect three continents – Asia, Europe and Africa; via road, rail and sea transportation  covering a total of 3.2 billion people that is almost 45% of the world population.
