Italy on March 23, 2019 signed a “non-binding” protocol with China to take part in the nation’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which aims to link China with Europe.

With the move, Italy has become the first G-7 country to sign up for the massive project, which is seen as a new Silk Road that will have trade links stretching from Asia to Europe.  In doing so, Italy has sparked unease in the United States and its European Allies, who have previously expressed concern over China’s growing global influence.
