In 2013, China’s President, Xi Jinping, proposed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), sometimes alternatively labeled "One Belt, One Road." The State Council authorized the BRI action plan in 2015 with two main components: the land-based “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the ocean-based “21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. The belt and road together are intended to strengthen China’s ties to more than 60 countries of the Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, Mediterranean Sea, and Europe. The initiative is part of China’s major strategy to increase its outward investment in infrastructure building, develop new multilateral financial instruments, and facilitate economic cooperation in the Eurasia region.
