Summary: International Political Economy (IPE) focuses on how interest, power and finance structures control economic relations between states. A more recent field of that literature deals with economic diplomacy. The differential of this concept lies in the use of economic instruments to pursue political objectives. Since the end of the 1990s, and with greater momentum since the 2008 crisis, China’s economic rise and international projection have been accompanied by a greater willingness to use economic diplomacy tools based on internal and external goals. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a clear example of this process, with special incidence in the regions of the Global South. This study analyzes the concepts related to economic diplomacy and the interaction with the foreign policy of Xi Jinping, and its projection towards the Global South. It concludes that Beijing tries to develop and project its economic power through BRI, both in its periphery and around the globe. Likewise, it also responds to objectives of a domestic nature, linked to its modernization process.
