One Belt, One Road: Briefing Session, Report, & Webinar

On Wed 9 December in Glasgow, China Britain Business Council will run a briefing event focusing on opportunities for businesses related to the One Belt One Road initiative, launched by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2013.

The programme will present the key findings of a report into this initiative to improve and create new trade routes, links and business opportunities with China, which will pass through over 60 countries along the way, through Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Jeff Astle, CBBC’s Executive Director, and Nathan Blunt from the FCO, will lead the session along with panellists from companies which are actively involved. Initial opportunities exist in infrastructure development, financial and professional services, advanced manufacturing and transport, agriculture, energy and resources, logistics, construction and master planning, as well as regionally in ports, tourism and environmental industries.
