The New Silk Roads

With the Belt and Road Initiative, BRI for short, China wants to reactivate and further develop the historic Silk Road. This initiative is about reviving the Eurasian economic area. The main goal is to develop infrastructure for the trade routes, create trade relations and strengthen a network of key cities. Find out more in this short explanatory video.

The greatest opportunities of the Belt and Road Initiative are that it enables an alternative globalisation. On the one hand, with other global institutions, actors and structures, on the other hand, through a different kind of globalisation than that of neoliberal globalisation. It is to be completed in 2049 - when the People's Republic will be 100 years old. In these videos you can learn more about the Belt and Road Initiative, its opportunities and risks.
