In October last year, Andrews signed a “framework agreement” with the People`s Republic of China on the “common promotion of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.” The title is a Chinese government language for the BIS, Xi Jinping`s strategy to strengthen Chinese power and create a Chinese-centered world. Victoria`s Liberal opposition questioned why the deal failed to protect Victorian farmers from the 80 per cent tariff on Australian barley that the Chinese government put on Australian barley this month. But the reality could be more prosaic. The Memorandum of Understanding and the subsequent “framework agreement” refer to reciprocal commitments to “promote practical cooperation” of Chinese companies in Victorian infrastructure and Victorian enterprises in “China and third markets”. RELATED: Victoria`s Belt and Road Deal with China is concerned that China has both geopolitical and economic motivations behind this initiative. Xi called for a more confident China, while slowing growth and rocky trade relations with the United States have put pressure on the country`s leaders to open new markets for its products. Russia has moved closer with China to the practical debate on the overall Ice Silk Road infrastructure project. This was organized by representatives of the Vnesheconombank at the International Conference development of the shelf of Russia and the CIS – 2019 (Petroleum Offshore of Russia), in Moscow. [Clarification needed] [unreliable source?] Some analysts claim that the Victoria BRI agreement means that Chinese firms will be on March 28, 2015, the Chinese State Council has outlined the principles, framework, key areas of cooperation and cooperation mechanisms regarding the initiative.
 The BIS is considered a strategic element of the foreign policy of the People`s Republic of China and was enshrined in its Constitution in 2017.  So what? The infrastructure is nothing more than concrete and steel. It is tied to digital technology that controls its critical functions. The 2018 federal 5G decision dealt with the risks of digital technology from states such as China, which require companies to cooperate for security and state intelligence purposes. These questions are also relevant here. He said the U.S. would take “no risk to our telecommunications infrastructure, nor any risk to the national security elements of what we need to do with our Five Eyes partners.” This initiative was incorporated into the Constitution of the People`s Republic of China in 2017.  The Chinese government calls the initiative “an attempt to improve regional connectivity and enjoy a better future.”  The project has a deadline of 2049 which coincides with the centenary of the creation of the People`s Republic of China.
Some observers and skeptics, particularly from non-participating countries, interpret this as a plan for a Sinocentric international trading network.   In the Maritime Silk Road, which is already the route of more than half of the world`s containers, deep-water ports are being built, logistic nodes are being built and new communication routes are being created in the hinterland.
