In this episode I'll be chatting with Ruben Gonzalez-Vicente. He is a Lecturer at Leiden University in the Netherlands and studies China's relations in Latin America and the Caribbean. We chat about Chinese loan making in the Caribbean (with a particular focus on Jamaica) and the implications of the Belt and Road Initiative 一带一路 (BRI) for Caribbean development.
This is a theme that we will return to again in later episodes of the podcast and the discussion here sets a great foundation.
