The New Silk Road, Series 5 - Cold War Corridor

4 x 48 HD
Broadcaster:  Channel NewsAsia

China, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and Russia were once strong allies in the Cold War. Now, rapid transformation is happening in these countries, as China's trillion dollar Belt and Road Initiative is about to transform the Eurasia corridor.


Diplomatic ties between China and Russia are strengthening, based on a convergence of national interests, a similar view of the world order, and the need for an ally against the United States. Together, these superpowers form an impressive economic bloc, and a formidable military partnership. What does it mean for the rest of the world? Is it a stabilizing force for global geopolitics, or a scary alliance at risk of plunging the world back into the Cold War mentality of the 20th century?


This brand new series of the Award-winning New Silk Road uncovers just what the Belt Road Initiative means for countries along the old cold war corridor.
