Description


Herbert Smith Freehills China International Business and Economic Law (CIBEL) Centre invites you to attend CIBEL Lunch Seminar "Belt and Road Initiative and China’s Progressive Opening-up Pattern" given by Professor Xinya Mao on 24th October.



Abstract:

Since late 2013, the Chinese government, led by President Xi Jinping, has introduced a new policy initiative – the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). BRI firstly aimed at building up a closer economic relationship with China’s neighbouring countries, but now, it can be regarded as an inclusive platform for infrastructure connectivity and practical cooperation between Asia, Central Asia, Europe and whichever regions and countries provided it has the will to participate in. This seminar will examine the significance of BRI for both Chinese economic development and regional economic cooperation in the aspects of infrastructures, trade, finance, etc. in the past six years. It believes that BRI has created a new pattern of China’s opening-up at capital flows, enterprise innovation, and geographic connectivity, and so on. Going forward, China would take a series of measures during the construction of BRI and Free trade zones (FTZs) to widen its door to the outside world and boost higher-quality opening-up.
