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.”
