The One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative creates significant opportunities for organisations to participate in a range of projects, especially those involved in the infrastructure, construction, heavy equipment, energy, water and related industries. Our report, One Belt, One Road: an economic roadmap attempts to make sense of this programme, addressing the opportunities and challenges presented by this important global development policy.
China is positioning itself as a key source of trade and investment for countries in seven key regional spheres. For governments, this initiative raises key questions about what OBOR means for China and the countries it connects (including those it excludes), how OBOR deals are being structured, as well as the risks involved in their financing and execution.
As the world’s leading resource for economic and business research, forecasting and analysis, The EIU is able to supply highly nuanced and practical risk analysis concerning the OBOR initiative, with greater depth of insight to meet specific needs. We are able to answer key questions such as:
- How is OBOR impacting the countries it reaches?
- Is it a threat or boon to multi-lateral trade?
- Is OBOR a one-way proposition to help Chinese interests or a truly mutual win-win concept?
- In what ways are deals being structured and implemented?
- How best to interpret risks and opportunities of OBOR projects?
As China’s biggest foreign economic policy gathers pace, new projects are being announced and contracts awarded. To find out more, download the report here.
