CHINA BELT AND ROAD FORUM : THE NEW CHINA SILK ROUTE COVERING MOMBASA PORT

China currently is trying to flex its might in the geopolitics arena with this initiative that will cost them 1.4 trillion dollars in 10 years. They are looking to revitalize the ancient silk road to usurp America as the top dog in the world.


We all know what the ancient silk road did for the ancient somali civilization, imagine the benefits this project could do for the country. China is investing 150 billion annually in upgrading roads/ports, building railways, and setting up pipelines.

However, as it stands the current map bypasses Somalia but the country is abundant with natural resources. Once Somalia takes care of its house in the next few years it could take advantage of this opportunity by asking china to help build pipelines to service our offshore black oil to the global market.

All in All, we need to find a way to eat a piece of this pie to catch up with the modern world.
