The Belt and Road Initiative – Separating Myth from Fact @ Credit Suisse Forum St. Peter
Apr 2 @ 14:00 – 17:00

An Asia Society Long Conversation in cooperation with Credit Suisse

Much has been written about China’s «Belt and Road Initiative» – the ambitious but also shape-shifting initiative aimed at upgrading the world’s connectivity infrastructure. After a little over five years, the project has expanded to include a «Polar Silk Road» and a «Digital Silk Road», among many other things. Yet much remains unclear about the BRI: How much money is actually being invested? Is the motivation behind the initiative political, economic – or both? Will it bring opportunities for Switzerland and Swiss companies – or does it pose challenges?
