There are few Western writers who have managed to nail down the important components of China’s ambitious “Belt Road Initiative”. Andre Wheeler is one of them. Mr Wheeler is a businessman and PhD student whose study is focused on China’s grand scheme to turn the ancient Silk Road into a modern-day land, sea and air reality. His book launched this week entitled, “China’s Belt Road Initiative: The Challenge For The Middle Kingdom Through A New Logistics Paradigm” takes a good hard look at the initiative, including a case study of the China-Myanmar corridor.
