As austerity-ravaged Europe watches its undemocratic “institutions” grapple with the Greek tragedy, and the US backtracks on a fair nuclear deal with Iran, geopolitical tectonic plates are shifting in the Urals.
When it comes to government projects we are used to wait for years before they become a reality. International project leadtimes are far longer. But not in the case with the BRICS.
PRESENTATION BY HU YI
Mr. Hu Yi, First Secretary, Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Denmark, gave this speech at the EIR/Schiller Institute diplomatic seminar in Copenhagen on Jan. 30, 2015. The seminar, entitled “Economic Development, and Cooperation among Nations, or, Economic Collapse, War and Terror? The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land Bridge,” was held at the Russian Cultural Center. Helga Zepp-LaRouche gave the keynote speech, and diplomats from two other BRICS countries, Alexey Kolesnikov from Russia and Machiel Renier van Niekerk from South Africa (see EIR, Feb. 6, 2015), also spoke.
March 15—Substantial international attention has been focused on this year’s meeting of China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Committee (CPPCC), much of it misguided and/or malicious. But there is a real reason for the Congress’s importance. With the full brunt of the international financial crisis hitting Europe and the U.S., China is playing a crucial role in maintaining stability in the world economy. In particular, China’s commitment to the development of the two Silk Roads, the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, represents the only option for the world to chart a path out of the present economic crisis.
Much analysis is missing perhaps the most important potential role of China’s Silk Road aspirations.
“Over 280 academics and experts from 30 countries have been invited to discuss proposals to build a “21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. The event is themed “collectively building the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and creating a community of common destiny”.
China is putting her money where her mouth is, just like she did when America was just starting on strengthening its newly born Republic.

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday announced China will contribute $40 billion to set up a Silk Road Fund to strengthen connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region.
As Western Oligarchs are fighting against their own shadows, China is accelerating its construction of land-based and maritime Silk Road to strengthen cooperation with countries along its path.
China has been demonized during the time of Mao and for a very good reasons. He was killing his own people, 70 millions of them, as dictated by his puppet masters, i.e. the Jesuits.
