Over the past half decade, China has poured billions in investment into Southeast Asia via Beijing’s flagship infrastructure project, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). In the latest episode of our podcast series, Selina Ho, assistant professor in international affairs at the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, discusses with Joshua Kurlantzick, senior fellow for Southeast Asia at CFR, the effectiveness of BRI to date in Southeast Asia, the likelihood of its future success in the region, the ways in which Southeast Asian states themselves shape BRI, and the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on China’s relations with Southeast Asia.
