In the second of this four-part series on China’s Belt and Road initiative, we talk to Haslinda Amin, who hosts the second episode of Bloomberg’s TV series on the initiative and has traveled extensively through Southeast and Central Asia for the project. She looks at the complex ways countries in the region view China’s sprawling infrastructure investment.

This episode explores the political and strategic reasons China is interested in contributing to boosting India’s infrastructure.
