India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor revives ancient trade route, counters China’s BRI: Historian Dalrymple

  • The new India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor (IMEEC) is seen as an alternative to China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), rejuvenating an ancient trade route criticized for its modern concept as Silk Road.
  • This major historical route, centered around trade between East and West via the Red Sea, was more significant than the Silk Road, hails renowned historian William Dalrymple.
  • Dalrymple substantiates it using Roman records with evidences of high Indian exports superseding its imports from Rome, leading to enormous outflow of Roman gold to India.
