Asians countries have been, slowly but surely, forming closer relationships for quite a while, especially after the 2008 World financial crisis, they have learned not to depend on the Western institutions which offered no help in solving that crisis. They ( the Asian countries) have turned inward to ASIA and China has taken the leadership in pushing for further integration from Beijing to Paris, depending on how the integration implementation will evolved it could be a Win-Win situation for the participants.
An interesting article...

Here is more evidence that the Myanmar-China relationship is getting closer,

The previous President U Thein Sein wasn't so open to the Chinese but that started to change when Htin Kyaw succeeded him. He resigned in 2018 and ever since, they've been getting chummy with the Chinese again. With these big signatures, it looks like full speed ahead on the Belt & Road.

The Lao railway links into a China segment that extends the Yuxi railway line south of Kunming down through southwest China to Boten on the Lao border. Consider that not only are the Chinese building the Lao segment but a much longer rail line within China itself.. All scheduled for completion by the end of 2021. https://eng.yidaiyilu.gov.cn/qwyw/rdxw/88415.htm#p=11
