One Belt, One Road: Risks, Opportunities, and Challenges

The Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road
better known as One Belt, One Road
is China’s ambitious effort to foster global trade and economic development, with ‘Chinese characteristics’. Rather than a foreign aid program or merely a network of trading routes, at its heart One Belt, One Road (OBOR) is a debt-financed infrastructure development strategy. Stretching from Asia to Europe, it encompasses more than 60 countries, with official figures stating that there are 900 deals underway currently. Expert panelists will share insights and important information on OBOR. Learn more about the many opportunities available to all size companies of varied interests.
