(Bloomberg) -- President Joe Biden will launch a global infrastructure initiative to counter China’s international ambitions, particularly in the Indo-Pacific, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Thursday.

The announcement is set for next week’s Group of Seven summit. The heads of state will meet June 26-28 in Germany.

The US-initiated partnership will cover global infrastructure, physical health and digital infrastructure and will provide “an alternative to what the Chinese are offering,” ultimately with hundreds of billions of dollars in investment between the US and its G7 partners, Sullivan said at an event hosted by the Center for a New American Security.

“We intend for this to be one of the hallmarks of the Biden administration foreign policy over the remainder of his tenure,” Sullivan said. 

The effort will rely on private-sector funding and “relatively modest direct budget allocations” from the US government, he added.

More egregious spending at a time of high inflation, that will be the hallmark of this administration. Other western governments should also take heed.
