In an interview with the Institute for China-America Studies (ICAS), Matthew P. Goodman shares his insights on regional and global implications of China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR), Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and U.S.-China economic relations at large.
Goodman explores areas of tension and opportunities for cooperation. He notes both economic and geostrategic elements of OBOR and China’s ambition for economic and geopolitical influence in the region.
Goodman acknowledges that the AIIB's “lean, clean, and green” approach may contribute to regional public goods but has not yet done so thus far.
In closing, Goodman suggests potential issues for future collaboration including setting environmental and sustainability standards.
