China’s New Economic Silk Road: The Great Eurasian Game & The String of Pearls

Please email for more information

China's Silk Road Economic Belt is the largest single infrastructure project Chinese diplomacy and ambition have yet produced. Expected to involve 8 of 10 people of the planet, and create a unified market of 5 billion people, China's moves to make this happen in terms of creating institutions, banks, funding and expand Westwards will impact upon us all.

Chris Devonshire-Ellis' timely new book "China's New Economic Silk Road" outlines these ambitions. He will illustrate the intended Eurasian and Maritime routes that take in China, Central Asia, Russia, the Caucasus and Europe, as well as South-East Asia, the Middle East and Africa. He will examine cross border trade movements, problems and infrastructure opportunities that will result.
