As China advances the OBOR Initiative, China has built a solid foundation for deepening cooperation with Pakistan and made significant progress in building a rapport with East African countries. China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, Kenya-Uganda Economic Corridor, Tanzania-Rwanda Economic Corridor and Ethiopia-Djibouti Economic Corridor have become important pillars in China’s strategy concerning the Indian Ocean. However, the above-mentioned countries and regions have disadvantages such as poor economic base, low level of development, greater risk of war, greater security risk, intervention of the West and political unrest. This report mainly aims to adopt a problem-oriented approach to analyze the strategic goals and challenges of China in relation to the four major economic corridors, and make recommendations for next steps.
