Beyond Competition: Why the BRI and the B3W Can’t and Shouldn’t be Considered Rivals

Juliet Lu and Erik Myxter-Iino

Competition between the BRI and B3W infrastructure investment initiatives will be waged through the corporations and financial institutions of the world’s most powerful nations, and those are the interests who will most directly benefit from that competition. Those who lose out, on the other hand, are likely to be the workers, adjacent communities, and landscapes who will be the first to be squeezed when the competition gets tough. If we take the G7 at their word that the B3W aims to close the infrastructure funding gap while improving the quality and social and environmental impacts of projects, then continuing to portray it in terms of competition with China will undermine its stated goals. Working by example and in parallel, instead of working against China is a more promising way forward.
