Remodelando el orden económico internacional: la iniciativa china de la Franja y la Ruta

David Garciandía Igal


La Iniciativa de la Franja y la Ruta es el proyecto de desarrollo de infraestructuras más ambicioso en la historia reciente. Supone un importante factor en la ecuación del ascenso de China. Sin embargo, pese a que tiene un principio geoeconómico, el proyecto conlleva profundas implicaciones globales. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar tres preguntas básicas: 1) ¿Qué es? 2) ¿Cómo está financiado? 3) ¿Por qué se lanzó? Al responder a estas preguntas, sostengo que la Nueva Ruta de la Seda puede representar un medio para que China influya en el orden económico internacional establecido.

Palabras clave

Iniciativa de la Franja y la Ruta; Nueva Ruta de la Seda; China; orden económico internacional; geoeconomía
