IoD City of London held a fascinating panel discussion examining the Chinese ‘One Belt One Road Sea Route’ proposal.
Described as a ‘humungous’ development, the land- and sea-based revival of the ancient Silk Route aims to bolster trade between China and Eurasia while enhancing Beijing’s role on the world stage. If you haven’t heard about it yet, you almost certainly will in the near future. It was one of the most frequently covered news topics in the Asia-Pacific press last year.
Our event specifically examined the opportunities and risks the development might bring for China, Europe and the ASEAN region. Given the long-standing relationship between London and Hong Kong, as well as the growing ties between the UK and China, this development will provide numerous opportunities for business.
We are grateful to international law firm White and Case LLP for hosting and sponsoring the event. IoD City also partnering with the Singapore Business Group and the highly influential 48 Group Club for the evening.
We are also very grateful to our excellent speakers who included Her Excellent Miss Foo Chi Hsia, High Commissioner for Singapore, His Excellency Dr. Rizal Sukma, Ambassador of Indonesia, Stephen Perry, chairman of the legendary 48 Group Club, Sue Anne Tay of HSBC and Peter Lu of White and Case LLP.
