China’s Historic Silk Road is Resurrected from the Rubble
FEBRUARY 21, 2018
In 2013, President Xi Jin Ping introduced an initiative to construct a modern-day equivalent of the Silk Road as part of the country’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. If completed according to plan, it will reintroduce ancient land routes connecting China with Europe via parts of Central Asia and the Middle East. China is leading an initiative to revive one of the largest feats of trade infrastructure the world has ever known.
