China has taken several initiatives aimed at reshaping the international order since Xi Jinping became president in late 2012. China is creating economic, financial and political institutions that provide an alternative to the traditional US-led world order. Some Western analysts consider this a direct challenge to the current international system dominated by the West and criticize China for trying to provide alternative structures, while simultaneously making use of the existing institutions to China’s own advantage.1 From a Chinese perspective, under President Xi, China is taking advantage of its strategic opportunities and is starting to actively shape the international order by assuming greater global responsibility both in its direct neighbourhood and further afield. Furthermore, China is beginning to project its rising power abroad by investing in infrastructure and creating alternative spaces for dialogue outside existing platforms.
