China in 20yrs has ‘poured more contract…than America did in the past 100 years’: AAPA

    AAPA director general Andrew Herdman, speaking at CAPA Airline CEOs in Sydney, stated (05-Jun-2018) the Belt and Road Initiative has been labelled as the “most well know and least understood foreign policy initiative”. He noted the belt refers to ground transportation from China to Europe, with a focus on railways, roads, ground transport infrastructure, and improving the flow of trade. The road part of the initiative is “lost in translation” and refers to maritime routes. Mr Herdman noted the aviation is the “modern” part of transportation links, with this sector reporting considerable growth in recent years.
