China's approach to lending money to developing countries is radically different from that of traditional donors in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The difference between China's approach and those of traditional lenders have given way for critics to accuse Beijing of engaging what they call "debt-trap diplomacy."
Ma Xinyue, China Research and Project Leader at Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center, is among a growing number of development finance scholars who are trying to sort through China’s new approach to debt sustainability and loan risk assessment for countries along the Belt and Road Initiative.
