Bad news for India: Gotabaya Rajapaksa's Sri Lanka election win puts China back in the driving seat

China's expansion has come at the expense of India, traditionally Sri Lanka's economic and diplomatic champion.
China has invested an estimated $11 billion in Sri Lanka, around $8 billion in the form of loans related to Xi's signature "Belt and Road Initiative" designed to boost trade and transport links across Asia.
China has also completed two water facilities in a parched part of Sri Lanka, while a third, the biggest, is nearing completion and will supply clean drinking water to villages in the Puttalam area.
