RWR Data and Analysis on Belt and Road Initiative Cited by Financial Times

On April 30, the Financial Times referenced RWR’s data on the total amount of lending to BRI countries by China’s leading state financial institutions.  Per RWR’s input, “RWR Advisory, a Washington-based consultancy, estimated that total announced lending by Chinese financial institutions to BRI projects since 2013 was $461bn.”
The piece, authored by James Kynge and Sun Yu also offered input from RWR Chief Operating Officer Andrew Davenport, “The narrative certainly matters and indeed they seem to worry about it…If they can persuade people not to always be looking at what mischief Beijing is up to but rather to see the ‘goodness’ on offer, that’s a winning formula for China.”
