The rise of China, viewed with equal parts of unprecedented anticipation and anxiety, has been a focal point for much of the first two decades of the 21st century. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013 has been greeted with a similar mix of
Currently, BRI spans 70 countries, encompasses almost 60% of the world’s population and, by some estimates, up to 40% of global GDP. Views of BRI are largely polarized. To address the myriad of concerns, misunderstanding and thirst for knowledge about China’s engagement in the 21st century with the rest of the world, the original idea of China and the World: Ancient and Modern Silk Roads was born. Through gathering subject experts in industry and the academic community, this journal aims to provide clear, succinct and topical insight into policies, international collaboration and developments that affect both China and the global community.
In this first issue, the line-up of papers attest to the extensive reach of polices and initiatives such as BRI. From culture, economics to history, traditional medicine to geopolitics, the papers published in the first issue are merely first indicators of the impact of such policies as Chinese engagement with the world community deepens and expands.
The editorial board of China and the World reflects the mission of the journal in covering the spectrum of views and executive editors welcome cogent and thought-provoking papers to be submitted for each issue of the journal. The honest views and support of readers are that which fuel our determination to make this journal a true success.
