Sung, Chen-Ta (UK)

The Euromoney Belt and Road Index (EBRI) shows the movement of investment climates (IC) and GDP among 69 Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) countries. The EBRI aggregated value demonstrates a generic politico-economic condition among the BRI region. The value is published quarterly and aims to provide readers a credible reference of politico-economic changes among BRI countries since the initiative's inception in 2013.

In comparing aggregated values over the past four quarters, we note different degrees of positive movement. The movement between Q1 and Q4 2017, shows a slight but continuous upward trend. Equally between Q4 2017 and Q1 2018, the aggregated value moves positively, from 102.41 to 110.04 points. This trend suggests a strengthening IC and/or GDP in the BRI region since Q4 2013.
