Laying the Groundwork for Sovereignty and National Identity
This chapter explains the groundwork for sovereignty and national identity. China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) represents one of the most capacious and provocative symbols of the People's Republic of China's (PRC) growing global power. On the other hand, Route 32 serves as a major artery connecting Costa Rica's capital with its Caribbean coast which is a hub for crucial shipping routes. Meanwhile, the Grand Canal of Nicaragua is one of the more provocative Central American initiatives associated with China. The PRC government's representations of non-interference and respect for local sovereignty did not ease fears that the Chinese firms' work on crucial infrastructural initiatives would hinder the region.
