The Belt and Road Initiative, and the Free and Open Indo-Pacific, have new dimensions and new players. But how are these concepts unfolding, and will they move past existing pitfalls?
BOTH THE Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP) and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)
are being updated for a post-pandemic world. Yet while crisis provokes, it also reveals.
The pandemic is not only laying bare innovations in multilateral mechanisms, but also
illuminating the strengths and weaknesses undergirding these strategies — ones that
are intrinsic to greater cohesion within these mechanisms.
In recent months, Beijing has switched gears to highlight the Digital Silk Road (DSR)
and Health Silk Road (HSR) — two pre-pandemic initiatives that have gained new
credence as the physical BRI gets put on pause. The DSR could make further inroads
globally as the pandemic accelerates digitalisation. But as it covers a range of issues,
from e-commerce and smart cities to 5G networks, progress will be uneven.
