  • Please join us for The Silk Road Summit – 2nd Annual Conference: Exploring Business, Trade & Investment Opportunities on the New Silk Road. Multiple initiatives are now converging to galvanize unprecedented investment activity focused on the infrastructure and trade links between Asia and Europe (Eurasia). 
  • China has taken the initiative in capitalizing new development banks – the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Silk Road Fund – designed to modernize and expand the ancient Silk Road transport web that linked East Asia with the Mediterranean. China’s “One Belt – One Road” concept projects massive infrastructure expansion – on both the traditional land routes plus the Indian Ocean “Maritime Silk Road.”
  • This is not a one nation project, but involves a synergy of nations throughout Europe and Asia. America’s and Europe’s involvement are a key factor in bringing great technological and corporate resources to help build and develop the new Eurasian Highway.ec_collage_500-min
