This is it – China takes over the earth. I am happy that Nigeria is part of the new world order, running from Beijing. With 126 countries in the family of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which gives real cash, over Western World’s credit line, Beijing begins its era. It is simple: the man with cash will always win the man with line of credit. You can accuse China whatever you want, more global leaders will book tickets in coming years to Beijing than any other global capital. Cash is KING.
The Deputy Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Zhao Yong, announced on Friday that over 126 countries and 29 international organisations had signed the China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
Mr Yong made the announcement at a news conference organised by the embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Abuja.
He said that the second Belt and Road Forum, held in Beijing, China on April 25 on “Belt and Road Cooperation: Shaping Brighter Shared Future”, was to promote the development of the BRI.
He quoted President Xi Jinping of China as saying that “China will implement BRI talents programme and in five years, offer 5,000 opportunities for exchange, training and research for participating countries.
According to him, great achievements have been made in pursuit of the BRI, since the past six years that Ping came up with the initiative.
