Chinese Investment in the Framework of Belt & Road Initiative in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan: Current Situations, Challenges, and Perspectives

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

We study the impact of FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) under the framework of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. We explore the status quo, opportunities, and challenges in the regional economic cooperation of China and Central Asia (represented by Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) and evaluate the Chinese economic impact on the region in the areas of hard powers and soft powers. In the area of hard powers, we mainly focus on the infrastructure, industrialization (and “Capacity Relocation”), and trade. In the area of soft powers, we lightly touch on the Chinese influence and integration into the local community life. We apply three research methods: a) secondary research analysis; b) opinion survey; and c) in-depth interviews.
