The slow and steady approach of China looks quite promising to me.
The US doesn't have the collective balls (and will) for larger space investments anymore. With the cost of wars to shoulder, and the declining international influence, I don't see much hope there.
Europe, they would first have to agree on something. I don't see much hope there.
Russia, enough problems with themselves. Slim hope if they will want to wag their collective dick and show off. More likely they will wag their intermediate-range missiles and look like dicks.
That leaves mentioned China. While the three other non-hopes bicker and throw sanctions on each other, China will slow-and-steady crawl first to Moon, then to Mars. And then eat our lunches.
Oh well... Better them than nobody...
