Chinese Firms’ Overseas Infrastructure Investments: A Strategic Pressure Point?

Grant Year: 2022

Jack Bianchi and Gabriel Collins will explore whether China’s growing overseas infrastructure could become a vulnerability for Beijing. They will assess the character and scale of China’s overseas infrastructure investments; identify vulnerabilities based upon such characteristics as the ownership structure of those assets; compare options for exploiting or defending prospective vulnerabilities; and conduct a workshop and a war game to test the merits of proposed policy options. The project’s findings will be presented in a report.
