The New Silk Road – Transforming Vision Into Reality: Business Opportunities & Implications

The New Silk Road and Maritime Route (which the Chinese have labeled One Belt-One Road) is the most ambitious and exciting business and economic project of the 21st Century. It stretches across the Eurasian continent from Xi’an in China to Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and across the Pacific and Indian Oceans from Indonesia and into the Mediterranean in Venice.
The road to realizing the New Silk Road is actually strewn with hurdles and challenges: geographic, environmental, financial, political and geopolitical. Yet no serious aspiring business leader of the 21st Century should fail to have the project firmly on her radar screen!

With experienced and knowledgeable speakers, including representatives of the New Silk Road International Chamber of Commerce, the potential business opportunities as well as the potential pitfalls will be reviewed and key actors identified.

How the silk road project will impact your business
