The Geopolitics and geoeconomics of one belt one road (OBOR)
The One Belt One Road (OBOR) or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) project is a major geopolitical and geo-economic initiative of China spanning connectivity, economic planning, market development and market dominance as well as geopolitical assertion in a vast region stretching from East Asia to Africa, Europe and West Asia. In its own way it is seen as a response to the Asian pivot of the United States and its projected funding runs into billions, if not hundreds of billions of dollars.
Observer Research Foundation is hosting a half-day to discuss, challenge and explore the geo-political and geo-economic consequences of the OBOR initiatives and their implications for India. The discussion will be followed by lunch.
