Abstract

Since China's reforms carried out by Deng Xiaoping in 1978 and continued by the more active Xi Jinping in 2013, by forming a new silk economic road, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) with the aim of creating cooperation and interdependence and harmony in the Asia-Pacific regional order. and Global. The foundation of BRI is a form of romanticization of history during the Han dynasty with the old silk economy. However, BRI's interest in partner countries has become a separate threat with the existence of a "Debt trap" or debt trap carried out by China instead of infrastructure assistance. As a result, BRI is one of the new Ming-Qing dynasty-style “tributary system” models where debt trap is one of dedicating oneself to China as a core country. The results of the analysis explained that the influence on Timor Leste was a threat with an increase in debt by 13 percent in 2016, but it was denied by Timor Leste and China themselves, where the debt trap is a construction of subjectivity from US and allied concerns about China's domination.
