HONG KONG, Jun 20 (FAM) – Connectivity is seen as a good thing for nations, but sometimes achieving it can be far more difficult and complex than expected, even for close allies, as Pakistan’s latest anti-dumping ruling against Chinese steel products shows.

Islamabad’s latest ruling against China – its “all-weather friend”, according to the official rhetoric – may fuel scepticism about China’s massive “Belt and Road” globalisation initiative. If China can’t persuade its close ally that Chinese exports of steel and infrastructure is a good thing, it will find it much more difficult to convince others.
