“Bashar al-Assad is saying that the country is not alone, that he can rely on the support of a powerful ally and, thanks to that, he will be able to rebuild Syria. It is important that we do not exaggerate the diplomatic significance of such an eventual move. Investment, if any, would be mostly a business issue from the Chinese point of view.”
Andrea Ghiselli (T.wai & Fudan University) comments Chinese investment in Syria in the article “Syria plans to do sanction-busting business with China, but will Beijing play along?” on the South China Morning Post.
Andrea Ghiselli is a non-resident Research Fellow at T.wai and an Assistant Professor of International Relations and Public Affairs at Fudan University (Shanghai).
