BELT AND ROAD INITIATIVE
MEANS FOR BANKS
GBM benefits from early adoption of global approach
The Belt and Road Initiative is a vastly ambitious project to upgrade transport infrastructure across south east Asia, south Asia, the Middle East and Central and Eastern Europe to facilitate the flow of Chinese trade. Euromoney and Asiamoney go behind the big headline numbers – $900 billion of investment, across up to 65 countries accounting for two thirds of the world’s population – to uncover what’s already happening on the ground, who the key drivers are and what the true potential is.
Euromoney and Asiamoney report in unrivalled depth on the experience so far and the expectations of the principal actors: Chinese providers of state capital, multilateral lenders, state banks, non-Chinese private banks, capital markets participants and project sponsors. The key to delivering the extraordinary vision of Belt and Road will be mobilizing all these sources of funding, harnessing risk sharing by state-backed institutions to release profit-seeking private capital all along its vast route.
