I have written about the new concept of transnationalism, as I call it, that is as significant as globalisation. Transnationalism is the development of infrastructure across nations, even continents. It requires special levels of cooperation between nations to enable the transmissions – by road, rail, canals, pipes and cables and grids – to move swiftly across the nations, not stopping for borders or different technologies, which need to be harmonised.
President Xi made this transnationalism and the eliminating of obstacles and harmonising of movement a key part of the May BRI Conference he hosted in Beijing in May.
If you look at the following article and read through to the end – it is quite short – you can see the significance of this out of the box thinking to speeding movement of freight, passengers, vehicles and products and electricity and telecommunications.
