The Belt and Road Initiative – Separating Myth from Fact
An Asia Society Long Conversation in cooperation with Credit Suisse
Much has been written about China's «Belt and Road Initiative» – the ambitious but also shape-shifting initiative aimed at upgrading the world’s connectivity infrastructure. After a little over five years, the project has expanded to include a «Polar Silk Road» and a «Digital Silk Road», among many other things.
Yet much remains unclear about the BRI: How much money is actually being invested? Is the motivation behind the initiative political, economic – or both? Will it bring opportunities for Switzerland and Swiss companies – or does it pose challenges?
Join us as we explore these questions through the format of a «long conversation»: A half-day event combining keynotes and a series of one-on-one conversations on stage between academics, thinkers, politicians and business representatives.
