Video: China Looking to the South: Necessity, Strategy, or Both?

In this new podcast from the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden (BRIX) our guest, Professor Li Xing, University of Aalborg in Denmark, and Hussein Askary discuss the ongoing debate about China “looking to the Global South”.

Professor Li gives a very pedagogical breakdown of the motives, principles, and importance of this outlook. Important concepts of current history Chinese governance and foreign policy are thoroughly detailed. Concepts like the two “three-world’s theories” and “politics in command versus economics in command” are thoroughly analyzed.

The significance of the rise of the BRICS Plus and other important Eurasian and African economic powers in a rapidly changing world economic environment are taken into consideration in this very enriching dialog.

This is the second of a series of interviews on the theme of China-Western relations and the role of the Belt and Road Initiative.
