Chinese investment in Finnish infrastructure? "China Daily" reports on a speculative project to build a giant tunnel under the Baltic, to link Helsinki with Tallinn, with the backing of "unnamed Chinese investors".

This is what happens when the United States dithers while China is flush with cash and ambition.
