Thursday 16th November at 6.30pm for 7.00pm at The Army & Navy Club
The Modern Silk Road
Rear Admiral Chris Parry RN; Michael Howell – MD Cross Border Capital; and Julian Hamilton Barns – Chair Pakistan-Britain Business Council
The ancient trading network – collectively known as The Silk Road – was arguably the greatest single influence on world civilisation and world trade from Classical time through to the Renaissance. Under her ‘One Belt, One Road’ project, China aims to replicate the epoch changing influence of the original. With a western terminus in London, at St Pancras, major overland links through the Trans Himalaya to massive new port facilities in Pakistan and links by sea to 60 nations in Euro-Asia, Oceania and Africa, the People’s Republic of China will bi-pass the choke points which have restricted her expansion. The potential – and the risks – are massive.
Commonwealth Argosy has assembled a panel of leading experts to both brief and to examine with you the impacts this massive project will bring overland, by sea and in the digital and financial sphere.
