Baby steps. It's a long game as Patrick mentioned. First overcome the Myanmar hurdle.

Eventually, China will win over Myanmar's Union Parliament, backing Myanmar military against any U.S. imposed sanctions for alleged human rights abuses of Rohingya Muslims.

His excellency Win Myint will hedge their position against the U.N. by succumbing to the Belt and Road cooperation.

Given the rock throwing spat over the Chinese and Indian border, I'm glad this BCIM project supersedes all lingering land disputes.

Both countries have their eyes on of the bigger prize: Xi's Khan-like Belt and Road Initiative, and India's golden opportunity to link up from Myanmar's Mandalay all the way down to Singapore, a sought after destination for Indian migrant working class. Politics connecting new roads.
