China's Belt and Road Initiative

A View from the Periphery

Aula am Campus der Universität Wien
Spitalgasse 2-4 / Hof 1.11, 1090 Wien

Diskussion, Round Table


This round table discussion will present updated Information on the implementation of China's Belt and Road Initiative in Myanmar and West Asia. Experts from the Department of East Asian Studies (University of Vienna) and specialists from outside the university as well as from NGO's will discuss the question whether or not the Chinese initiative creates the kind of "win-win-situation" which the Chinese Government propagates as its main aim. Do countries such as Myanmar profit from Chinese investments into their infrastructure? Is the so called debt trap real or simply a counter narrative to the Chinese government's version? How does tzhe implementation of the belt and Road Initiative influence on-going internal conflicts in the resepctive countries?
