- The Belt and Road Initiative Program (BRI) program is one of the Chinese propaganda strategy that is inseparable from the ideological load in order to influence dominance, and hegemony motifs to the countries in the region, making its economic and technological power a capital to place China as a dominant party. Granting aid loans, became a binding tool to unleash dominance and influence on the countries of the region. Ideological content is percolated through to the heads of the countries in the region through the language of speech texts placed as written discourse texts which can be studied with Bourdieu’s concept of symbolic dominance using the method of critical discourse analysis. Based on the results of the analysis, the use of language that represents symbolic dominance behind the speech text is packaged in the form; 1) Making himself part of the interlocutor, 2) Making the interlocutor the owner of the concept, 3) Making the interlocutor an active participator, 4) Making the equality of the two parties, 5) Bias to the interlocutor, 6) Making oneself the superior party, and 7) Entering aesthetic values through figurative languages.
