Event description
Researchers from HKUST and business leader from EY will assess the successes and disappointments of the Belt and Road Initiative.

About this Event

China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is an ambitious program to build infrastructure and increase connectivity among countries throughout the world. It has now been more than five years since its launch, with public commentary about it becoming increasingly polarized.

This event aims to offer evidence-based research insights into the actual implementation of BRI projects around the world to move beyond ideological debates to critically assess the successes and disappointments of the Initiative and discuss ways to make it more impactful moving forward.

In addition to remarks by Albert Ng, EY Regional Managing Partner for Greater China, a panel of leading researchers from HKUST engaged in a multiyear research project on the Initiative will aim to move beyond ideological debates to critically assess the successes and disappointments of the Initiative and discuss ways to make it more impactful.

Two hotly debated issues related to the Belt and Road Initiative will be addressed: Trade and Investment Impacts, and China as Friend or Colonizer.

The event is organized by HKUST Institute for Emerging Market Studies and is supported by EY and HKUST Development and Alumni Office.

It will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in Putonghua.
