Year of Amazonian DC Minus 1
Stuff's happening real time in DC this week -its the world banks most pivotal meetings of the year on dc turf because this year its annual meeting is in Indonesia where not quite coincidentally it is partnering AIIB in billion dollar project to end slums
a benchmark project for asean world.
Places national brand visions are being segmented between those who actionably get infrastructure (digitally blended real) ends poverty and gives under 30s hope of uniting as sustainability generation.
Yesterday at Brookings leading Chinese officials launched a central bankers edited report on China in 2018 postitioning BRI -a brand polarising the whole of development and investment depending which meeting in DC you walk into (some parts of brookings extremely positive and influding fintech; most parts of csis divisive, and so forth across DC as a town of conflicting world views stirred by the us president's own use of twitter virus)
While some may think Kissingers 2016 plea to Xinping and Trump to use millennial goals leadership summits to unite is fracturing, there is a different argument grounded case by case. For example North Korea's positive futures depend on China , Korea, Japan, among others applying BRI to the Belt Road situation of N Korea's peoples. If there is such a hope as a right man place time for Koreas, Moon Jae-In is it as anyone who has tracked his contributions to international leadership meetings from the start of his office will see.
...And which if we get to Tokyo Olympics without war can be the Far East best of times for girls as well as boys. And of course, artificial snow notwithstanding, Beijing can be expected to celebrate its own winter olympics 2022 particularly with polar belt road nations and BRI celebrity ambassadors
ROLLING BACK RAJS EURASIA BELT
Move round China's neighborship compass, and the whole south asia development can depend on whether at least some real BRI maps surface in meetings over next few months where body language of Modi and Jinping, Franciscans who know med sea millennia (and even the UK Royal family with Commonwealth friends) can have big impacts as can that of technologists who value BRI. Remember BRICS 2017 included all national leaders in attendance demanding ecommerce gateway2017.com aliresearch.com training for their senior public servants
By weekend i hope various BRI launch meeting will be transcripted or videoed- if so i will update with specific reference by late sunday - of course if you have a relevant reference that would help too
I believe this is most valuable work any intern or other friend (young or old) of China
and un progress on sustainability goals can build this summer, Of course happy to be told where there is something more important all sustainability and jobs-for-youth friends can be action learning networking now

May 2017 Beijing: BRI was celebrated by many leaders concerned with achieving sustainablity goals including Xi Jinping and Antonio Guterres and Jim Kim (footnote quotes- collect eg from cgtb transcripts) . BR1**2:: May 2019 Beijing (after youth-wise@ paris March 2019) will evaluate whether nations are united around real world infrastructure maps to end poverty
However historically while development experts agree infrastructire is critical for including every community , implementaion gaps have shown many cases of infrastructure resulting in costly failures measured againt trasnparency and inclusion of human development down to the poorest communities. Curiously digital infrsatructure designers have helped leapfrog local inclusion in globalisation in ways real infrsatructure imagineering has not yet collaboratively popularised in western mindsets
A maturity profile is normally a tool used to illustrate difference between least and most systemically wise implemenation. Typically 4 or 5 profiles can guage readiness and capacitoes to apply BRI from beginners level to excellence unifying all experts practically
To maximise transparency it is important that leaders who value both sustainability goals and BRI are included in millennials' survey of benchmarks that maturity will linkin in every practical way
For example both friends of China as leader of BRI brand as a process for humanity and eminent UN advisers teams could be among the first to contribute to a survey of maturity
To be successful in developing a standard profile one needs to develop/viralise survey questions but which check whether people are implementing what master practitioners did through inspired case evidence focusing on positive lessons at mass level (while experts unlearn risks that spiralled due to lower level understanding of networks as systems of systems . Here one has to eg openly verify what eg Xi Jinping's value analysis steps were as his vision for rejuvenation and BRI have become inseparable as he has multiplied elarning curves of all his closest team members
Excellence valuation atlributes which eg Xi Jinping includes:
Urgency of national goal to end poverty (2020) and length of public service dedicated to this goal (his published essays Out of Poverty include practical diary notes since 1988 or earlier)
Regional responsibility for place development where cases were mapped together to show infrstructure as key
Being in the founding alumni network that has every year raised Tsinghua's exponential as a public servant university unique in the eastern hemisphere and www
China's smart Media investigating whether every public servant from city to village values BRI maturity
Preferantial application of technology and innovation to making the process engineering of BRI value multiplying over the time and through the connectivity that infrarstructure mobilises as an invetsment
Ultimately developing a plug and play map of trading routes that bridgescultural and business entrepreneurs so that ultimately every community is joyfully questioning what overland roads and what cpoastal belts unite peoples and places inside a nation and across trading partnerships for nations to be win-wins
