385. China's ‘One Belt, One Road’ Initiative: Development Aid or Debt Trap Diplomacy?


China is looking to extend its influence in the Indian Ocean Basin (IOB) through its One Belt One Road initiative (OBOR). Whilst Chinese state sponsored companies have invested $US billions in countries around the IOB, not everyone sees this in a positive light.
