G7 Unveils $600 Billion Global Infrastructure Plan To Counter China’s “Belt And Road”

By Tyler Durden

President Biden and G7 leaders pledged $600bln to a new global infrastructure project for emerging market economies to counter the Chinese regime’s Belt and Road initiative.

G-7 leaders from the US, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the European Union gathered at a summit in Bavaria, Germany, on Sunday and unveiled the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment (PGII) that will “will deliver game-changing projects to close the infrastructure gap in developing countries, strengthen the global economy and supply chains, and advance U.S. national security,” a White House press release read.

During the summit, Biden said the U.S. would deploy $200 billion in grants, federal funds, and private investment over five years for lower- and middle-income nations to boost infrastructure.

“I want to be clear. This isn’t aid or charity. It’s an investment that will deliver returns for everyone,” Biden said. He added that it would allow countries to “see the concrete benefits of partnering with democracies.”

Since its launch, Western officials have accused Beijing of pursuing debt-trap diplomacy by providing countries with financing to build infrastructure that benefits China more than the countries themselves.
