Real reasons for Vietnam’s crackdown on graft (Opinion).  “What makes sense (and what Hanoi appears to be doing) is to sort out the most profitable and competent firms from those that are institutionally incompetent and corrupt, and stop the latter from leeching off the state’s restricted funds.”

Responsible practices are key to BRI’s success.  “[Chinese companies participating in the BRI] should adhere to the United Nations Global Compact’s 10 universal principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and follow the guidance on social responsibility (ISO 26000:2010) of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).”
