But after ini­tial op­tim­ism the re­gion has lagged be­hind oth­ers in de­vel­op­ing Belt and Road pro­jects, with vari­ous polit­ic­al, eco­nom­ic and op­er­a­tion­al is­sues slow­ing pro­gress.The latest in a series of Belt and Road re­ports from CMS ex­am­ines the sen­ti­ment in the re­gion to­wards BRI, the chal­lenges that ex­ist, and the steps Belt and Road par­ti­cipants can take to achieve suc­cess. ht­tp://view.cer­os.com/cms-em­bed/bri-cee-sec­tor-high­lights/p/1750560left­fal­seTop­ics covered in the re­port in­clude:Belt and Road 2.0 – a more sus­tain­able ap­proach to de­vel­op­mentThe sec­tors at­tract­ing most in­terest among Belt and Road par­ti­cipant­sThe ef­fects of Cov­id-19 on Belt and Ro­ad­Mit­ig­at­ing Belt and Road risk and man­aging dis­pute­sAs well as look­ing at Belt and Road across CEE, we ex­am­ine at its im­pact to date in Ukraine and Rus­sia, and their po­ten­tial for fu­ture in­vest­ment.
