The Evolution of China’s Belt and Road Initiative: Implications for US Companies

China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) encompasses ambitious infrastructure projects in dozens of countries, but at the same time has garnered criticism for lacking transparency and employing questionable standards. Following the conclusion of the second Belt and Road Forum in late April, please join us for a discussion on how BRI is evolving and what opportunities and challenges it may create for US companies operating in China and other markets around the world. Nadège Rolland, senior fellow for political and security affairs with the National Bureau of Asian Research, and Jonathan Hillman, Director of the Reconnecting Asia project with CSIS, will share their insights on the outcomes of the forum and implications for business.

This event is for USCBC member companies and invited guests only. Registration is required.
