It could transform international trade as we know it, but requires unprecedented co-operation between organisations and nations to reach any of its ambitions. So what does “Belt and Road” mean for businesses in Asia and Europe?
“Belt and Road” is an initiative by the Chinese government aimed at reviving the historic Silk Road between China, Europe, and the Middle East. The original Silk Road was in fact made up of a large number of trade routes which served Chinese and Greco-Roman merchants. From around 114 BC, the Silk Road’s routes sustained the flow of goods between China and Europe – at least until the Ottoman Empire cut off the routes going through Turkey in the 1400s.
As part of “Belt and Road”, the Chinese government aims to re-establish trade corridors along many of the Silk Road’s original routes. “Belt” refers to the Silk Road Economic Belt, which passes overland from China through Central Asia to continental Europe. “Road”, somewhat counterintuitively, refers not to a land-based road but the Maritime Silk Road, an oceanic route connecting China to Europe and South-East Asia by way of ports in India and Africa. Each main route is likely to consist of numerous tributaries connected to China’s major cities and trade hubs.
