The Belt and Road Initiative is reshaping the global economic geography. Based on the background of the Belt and Road Initiative, this book explores the new development of the overseas Chinese entrepreneurial network that takes the Five-relationship culture as the foundation and investment, trade, and immigration as the pillars, the new changes in overseas Chinese situation, and the complexity of the social integration of Chinese immigrants. In postmodern contextual discourse, Chinese immigrants are called “Chinese among others.” Concerning history and reality, the synchronicity and diachronicity of their social integration cannot be separated. In this book the authors show that overseas Chinese are in a constantly changing social structure, and the “unfinished work of modernity” should be more proactive in supporting cultural diversity in principle, and striving for better social integration.
