Re: OBOR, Chinese Strategy and Implications

The $60 billion infrastructure China claims to have built for Pakistan is barely worth 1/5th of that over-invoiced bill.

China does not want World Bank to do an analysis on the real cost of that infrastructure nor its potential for (non) profitablility since it's a debt trap scheme.
