Understanding and Securing the Belt and Road: The View from the Ground

Four years since President Xi Jinping announced the Silk Road Economic Belt in Astana the regional project has become the outline for a global vision known as the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’. But it is seen in a very different light if you are looking from Beijing or from the countries along the way – with the initiative having a game changing impact across the heartland of Eurasia and in the Seas. 

This discussion will aim to understand better how the initiative is seen from Beijing, the broader geostrategic context, how it is seen from the ground, and how China aims to secure the success of the Belt and Road.
