Wang Xinsong is an associate professor at the Beijing Normal University School of Social Development and Public Policy. His recent research focuses on the political risks of China’s overseas investments and their impact on the governance of developing countries.

Since its unveiling in 2013, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has developed into a sweeping global project with profound implications for the international financial system, China’s own growth model, and governance in China and in countries along the Belt. The cornerstone of President Xi Jinping’s effort to reposition China as a global economic leader, the BRI has the potential to deepen international integration and alter financial standards and good governance practices.

Despite China’s promises of communal contributions and shared benefits, many in the West remain uncertain whether the BRI will reform or merely maintain preexisting norms and values. To what extent will the new China-backed financial institutions, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and New Development Bank, compete with the traditional Bretton-Woods organizations? And how will the internationalization of China’s economy shape the nation’s domestic financial systems? Finally, how can China promote transparency and accountability within and beyond its borders as the BRI develops?
