China today delivers 30+% of the world’s economic growth, and its “Belt & Road” initiative is injecting hope and creating fresh business opportunities for both countries along the route; as well partnering countries (infrastructure projects) from finance & construction perspectives. It has become the world’s largest manufacturing base; and as well the largest economy on a price-parity basis.
