We allowed Chinese to built highway in Poland. Look it up. It’s already trash. Do not let Chinese build you anything. You will pay for it more over time plus they always demand concessions.

Useless those Chinese can ship through the Chanel by Sicilia to Genua. There is enough Train capacity across the Alps. Not to forgot: Arctic route to Europe and a second Chinese, Moscow, Berlin Railway would be cheaper.

Hang any politician who advocates for China in your country. Chinese are not your friends and will exploit you as soon as they get chance. Look at what’s going on in Africa.

Wrong Balkan map. Danube flows north of Bulgaria, not through the Old Mounains in the middle of it.

Good job overall, but ... - your sketch on the Danube river and your distance measurements are wrong. Take another look at them and then please confirm: you have considered the route from the Danube Delta and not from the Danube-Black Sea Canal. Therefore the real route is shorter by 400 km so actually is not 1900 km, but 1500 km. This and some other political matters will make the Aegean Sea-Belgrade Canale a big No-No. The Adriatic Sea-Passau will remain just a wet dream for everyone. So I guess Turkey and Romania will remain the countries that make the biggest profit on those transports for another century, at least :D

I think it's a brilliant idea & if they insist politically since economically it's not a problem then it could be done since again it could shorten the distance the time route from northern Greece to central Europe by about 5 to 7 days which it's a week time = money instead going the today' s standard trip around the tip of Spain so emporium count on that because available time is everything however what Germany plans to do about it it's another thing if really wish for the moment to hold off its construction or wish & permit China economically to conquer the whole of Europe so it remains to be seen ...

China would build the canal and finish building in time or even maybe earlier than expected, but it is the Europeans that are playing dumb and every one of them is trying to gain the most,,, I'm sure China is ready and would start the project in a month if the involved Europeans are ready,, It would be idiotic and stupid not to do it,,, It would be the best thing since the invention of the PITA,,,

We could just stop buying Goods made from China so they will stop polluting the world on an industrial scale. They also practically use slave labor to produce all these cheap goods. Not too mention they are taking all these profits and building up their military. China has made it clear that they have ambition's of ruling the world. The only other country who is taking China's threat seriously is India who is also building up their military.

You miss some important stuff to mention. Also ur Danube Drawing is wrong. It mades the border with Bulgaria, and is mostly connecting the Black Sea with the Rotterdam through Constanța sea port, the biggest in Black Sea. You also didn't mention that a canal Danube-Black Sea is already existing in Romania to make the route more straight.

You talk like the new canals and routes the Chinese proposed will be used exclusively for shipping Chinese good to Europe and nothing back. Good going both ways by ships and others right now except the new routes will be a lot better and cheaper needless to say with huge environmental benefits. The current blockade of the Suez Canal showed how vulnerable the current system has and it will get worse!

Plans are insane on large scale . First , trip over Black sea is not so long , since tere is a canal from Contantia to Cernavoda, so no need to navigate all way North to Danube delta . Also , trip will be if not shorter , but faster with expecte and feasable Istanbul channal . Further , Vardar is not river , 99% is not navigable , and north of Thessaloniki it is more creek than river . In Skopje , for exaple , you can walk over most of the year ! Further on - between Macedonia and Srbia , and on Serbian south , there are at least 2 canyons , where even highway to build was challange . Finnaly , Morava is small and too shallow river , navigable just last few kilometers , thanks to Danube waters . So , number of interlocks will be excessivly high , slowing down traffic . But most important - there is no sufficent watter to fill cannal! Especialy in Macedonia . Idea of Alpe - Adria cannal is even more insane . Can one imagine price of such construction ( not to mention ecological issues) in the richest europen region ? And , it is interesting , there are much better solution to feed Europen ( 600mil ) market - insted insane projects - why not imvest in production facilites in Balkans and non-EU european countries . Raw materials are near , in Russia . Work force is skilled. And basic infarastrauctire is already there. On the other hand , if they like challenges : why not Suez 2 ? Or Cannal between Thailand and Myanmar ?

MF rs elites of E.U. and Europe,USA this is the hidden undisclosed cost of Ukraine civil insurrection..a peaceful diplomatic resolution would expand europes economies without the globalist despotic traitor thieves in europe,the West,Russia enriching themselves,povertizing and eliminating nations population,destroying culture of 2 milleniums and aiding and abetting foreign takeovers..The armaments ghoulies among them could then possibly direct thier efforts to counter a potential foreign ( out of continent) non economic agression. of course thiers always a chance usa and other whackos would engage those out of continent aggressors with collaboration in thier attainment of thier agression.Similar to the joint effort in the creation of covid pandemic... Europeun union end the conflict in Ukraine with diplomacy ,rebuild and build europe yourselves..Briefly to explain what globalist debt capitalism and despotism has create in the world today in europe,usa, china and russia now have 5000 living Hitler types controlling europr Russia. And the USA now. Europe,USA and Russia throw the bums out send them to China after thier booty is totally repatriated to the populace.

Geeeez tooooo much! Naaah I'd keep it in Istanbul as always, why? Bcoz its there! & it doesn't really matter that it passes that same route. China may hav a great idea of the silk road but the waterway portion of the plan is just too much of a plan, waaaay too much🤪 am sure right thinking people understand this concept: THAT A MIND CAN GO OVERBOARD! FALL OFF THE EDGE! IN OTHER WORDS, THE IMAGINED PLAN OUTWEIGHS REALITY THAT IT TILTS! I have always maintained the positive thought that China's plan for the "silk road" is great but cmon now, there is such a thing as going beyond whats just right, whats good enough. I hope&pray the world leaders will adjust to what is right, not tilt over with China's imbalance 🤣🤣🤣🤣 ah well, there are plenty level headed people in the world stage of leaders so I trust their intelligence will kick in & straighten out the Chinese kinks 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
