The Belt and Road Initiative is a significant development strategy launched by the Government of the People’s Republic of China with the intention of promoting economic cooperation among countries along the proposed Belt and Road routes. The Belt and Road refers to the land-based “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the seagoing “21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. The routes cover more than 60 countries and regions from Asia to Europe via Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, West Asia and the Middle East, currently accounting for some 30 per cent of global GDP and more than 35 per cent of the world’s merchandise trade. The Initiative has been designed to enhance the orderly free-flow of economic factors and the efficient allocation of resources. It is also intended to further market integration and create a regional economic co-operation framework of benefit to all.
The Belt and Road Initiative would provide not only the latest trends of market intelligence of Cyber Security in other countries, but also the modern development of the whole world economy. The Initiative also acts as a channel for members whose chapter is located within the Belt and Road Region to explore more business and knowledge enhancement opportunities.
