The EU's Global Gateway initiative would certainly be welcomed in most parts of Eurasia and elsewhere. However, that African quip « red tape and lectures » would also be valid across the globe. And European values, as defined by even themselves, are not homogenous ; while Scandinaevia talks and delivers on welfare, France verbally mimics welfare but delivers slums albeit urbanized ones. At this rate taking on China's BRI would be a challenge indeed for Europe, even at home China can prove that it has delivered millions out of basic poverty and often doing well across the globe as a result of it !</p>
