Abstract

One Belt One Road initiative is one of the mammoth infrastructure development projects that the world has seen in the recent past. With the visionary thinking of President Xi Jinping, the One Belt One Road significantly contributes to the economic infrastructure development of many continents including Asia, Europe, Africa, and South America. Although the recipient countries are significantly benefitted by receiving the financial aid under the One Belt One Road initiatives, economic and political activists raise grave concerns over the true intention of China. The present perspective analyzes both merits and demerits of implementing the One Belt One Road initiative in South Asia which is frequented by multiple social crises and natural disasters.
