The multi-billion dollar Belt and Road initiative, led by China, is a plan to create a massive economic zone connecting Asia, Europe and Africa through a network of roads, ports, bridges, tunnels and pipelines.

The plans, which include deep water ports in the Arctic, could involve 70 nations and two-thirds of the world’s population.
