China's One Belt One Road Initiative

The Center for Strategic and International Studies published in March 2016 a study titled "President Xi Jinping's 'Belt and Road' Initiative" by Christopher K. Johnson.  The study concludes there is little doubt that President Xi Jinping views the One Belt One Road as the signature foreign policy theme of his tenure and the practical embodiment of his China Dream for promoting national rejuvenation and cementing China's place as a leading world power.

This study is Asia centric and does not discuss the Maritime Silk Road.  The relevance of this project for Africa remains something of an open question.
