The Victorian government has released the agreement signed with China on 
the Silk Road/Belt and Road Plan, 8 October: 

However, the document was only provided as a scanned image, so I have 
run converted it to searchable text: 

One part of China's plan is expansion of Chinese education services 
internationally. Education is Victoria's largest service export. It is 
not clear if the Victorian Government has considered the effects on 
exports of joining the Belt and Road Plan.

I will discuss some of the educational implications of the Silk Road at 
the 7th International Conference on Teaching, Assessment, and Learning 
for Engineering in Woolongong in early December.
