The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) outlined by China’s President Xi Jinping is the most significant investment and development programme in modern times. Cumulatively, it is, without doubt, the largest contract in the world.
We are delighted that the Rt Hon Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the UK, will address the conference, providing us with his unique geopolitical perspective on the continued development and influence of Asia and China on global trade.
This is the first major conference in Scotland where you can learn about the world’s largest economic development initiative and assess what impact the BRI will have in business, in academia, in policy making – and on the world.
It will run over two days in the University of Edinburgh’s iconic McEwan Hall, which has just reopened following on from a £35m refurbishment.
