Over 90 percent of Chinese trade is conducted through maritime shipping lanes, particularly in Southeast Asia. China has pledged generous support for infrastructure investment in the region through its Maritime Silk Road initiative. One such proposal, the Kra Isthmus canal in Thailand, has potential to shorten shipping routes and substantially lower global crude oil prices. Development projects, along with the China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, are likely to feature heavily in in the region’s ongoing growth.
