White Tea Road
The White Tea Road, also known as the Baichadao is a global development strategy adopted by the Jingdaoese government in 1685. The initiative encompasses infrastructure developments in many countries on Micras. Goal of the project is to strengthen the ties between beneficiary nations and the Jingdaoese Empire and to open up markets for Jingdaoese companies. The name White Tea Road is derived from the custom of gifting small parcels of white tea to business relations at any personal meeting by Jingdaoese business people.
- Adrestia: Container terminals in the ports of Gondolin and Tranquility Base, from which Jingdaoese goods are distributed throughout Adrestia. Investments have been made in the port of Gondolin to accommodate larger vessels.
- Barbarian Republic: Container terminals in the port of Arvidsudde. Warehouses have been set up where Barbarian products are collected to be sold on the Jingdaoese market. Investments have been made in the port to accommodate larger vessels.
- The Hexarchy: Container terminal in the port of Kobol, from which Jingdaoese goods are distributed throughout the Hexarchy. Investments have been made in the port to accommodate larger vessels.
- Senya: A rail container terminal is being built in Jogasim on the Daocheng - Svorgas line, it is expected to be finished in late 1685.
There have been concerns over the project, with some opposition groups in affected countries calling the project colonial. It has been suggested that the Jingdaoese Empire demands a favourable treatment of its companies after investments have been made. Jingdao is said to have no free market and is also said to create unfair competition by subsidising its companies that operate overseas.
