(The Diplomat, By Wenyuan Wu) China plans to promote and protect its "One Belt, One Road" Initiative through greater focus and investment in information and communication technologies (ICTs). This ties into a large Chinese objective, which is to form a new "Digital Silk Road" for the potential to boost productivity and reduce emissions through ICTs. While it is primarily a public-private partnership, the public sector has been taking more of a leading role within China. However, regulations and corruption may make this more difficult than China anticipates.
