4 October 2019: Lecture on "Belt and Road Initiative and Free and Open Indo-Pacific: Are they Compatible?"

Akio Takahara
The University of Tokyo, Japan

Organised by:
Institute of Chinese Studies & Embassy of Japan in India

How should we define the Belt and Road Initiative? Takahara argues that the Chinese have a genius for formulating constellational concepts that are attractive but intangible, and BRI is one of those. What we should focus on are the tangible stars, namely, the projects, which can be shared with another constellation called the Free and Open Indo-Pacific Vision. If President Xi Jinping of China expresses his willingness to cooperate with the latter, he and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan can demonstrate to the world that peace and cooperation remain as the “main melody” of international relations in the 21st century, at least in this part of the world.
