China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) continues to evolve, offering new opportunities for nations, communities and businesses
It is now explicitly aligned with many areas that are increasing priorities for international businesses, such as ESG principles and sustainability. But in 2020 it faces unprecedented headwinds, including the global pandemic and trade disputes.
As a leader in many Belt and Road sectors, CMS has polled and interviewed over 500 BRI participants around the world, about their current thinking on BRI and the prospects they see for it.
This material is the foundation of our new reports on BRI, covering topics such as:
- The impact of Covid-19 on BRI
- Different views of BRI among Chinese and international participants
- Joint ventures and partnerships
- Problems experienced in BRI projects
- Key risks and risk mitigation
- BRI dispute resolution and arbitration
- ESG, sustainability and BRI
- Belt and Road 2.0
- The Digital Silk Road and the Health Silk Road
- The prospects for BRI after 2020
Our findings from China and Asia Pacific region are available now.
Reports on Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America will be published in the coming months.
