Keywords to Understand China: The Belt and Road Initiative
The Belt and Road Initiative
Keywords to Understand China: The Belt and Road Initiative is a selection of “China Keywords” entries included in an eponymous multilingual platform.
The “China Keywords” platform offers an authoritative guide to understanding contemporary China, a window into China’s political thinking, policies, and approach to development, including its governance philosophy and the vision of the current Communist Party of China (CPC) central leadership with Xi Jinping at its core.
A major national project implemented by the China International Publishing Group, the China Academy of Translation and the Translators Association of China, the multilingual platform can be accessed online and on mobile social media platforms.
This booklet is compiled to help readers better understand China’s Belt and Road Initiative. During the compilation process, the “China Keywords” project team worked closely with experts from relevant government departments, news outlets, research institutes and institutions of higher learning. Entries are grouped under thematic headings and presented in Arabic, English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazak, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese, as well as the original Chinese.
Keywords are key to telling a story. “China Keywords” are key to telling the story of China. We hope that our project will help build a bridge of understanding between China and the rest of the world.
