    What is debt trap? you get student loan to go to Harvard or do mortgage to buy house a debt trap ? Debt does not mean its a trap, only when the borrowed money is not used to make more money this is a trap. Chinese money is not used to buy weapons, it is used to build roads which bring more jobs and GDP and taxes. Then this is not a trap, this is the fuel for economic development of silk and road initiated countries.

    A little check and balance is fine, but China is helping their economy in the longer run for sure. It is a win-win, you can't lose on building roads. Roads allow development and trade.

    @John Smith Oh horseshit! the US doesn't want developing countries richer? So many countries got rich off of the including China from absolute poverty to extremely wealthy and developed nation. Japan after WWII, Korea, Taiwan, HK, Singapore, EU, and China, etc... Study your history man. If Nixon didn't visit China and allowed trade and investments, China would not be where it is today. The US allowed China's unfair business practices to prop up its local industry and market. Now it's telling Chin...

    @Allen Qian But you have to consider that a country is a collective organism, not an individual.What i am trying to say is a leader's decision in the long term shouldnt represent the future of a country since leaders do stupid mistakes all the time.

    CNBC, please give Xin En some funding, so she can travel around the world like other presenters. It's not fair to her that other presenters can travel but she has to stay in Singapore

    if she done some good research instead of repeating western propaganda, she would deserve more, but she suck at her job. all this talk abotu "debt trap" has she actually read up about who own most of the debt in the world and how much do chinese loan actually account for as a creditor? the answer is 12%. 12 fucking percent is demonized while we ignore the fact that white imperialist country holds for over 70% of the world foreign national debt.
