The Belt and Road Initiative was initially proposed by President Xi Jinping in 2013, with the objective of increasing interconnectivity and free trade, while creating more opportunities for China and B&R countries.
Launched in September 2017, PwC’s Belt & Road United is a platform that promotes sharing and exploring of business opportunities along the Belt and Road (B&R). It aims to engage a range of expertise spanning well-known scholars and think tanks that conduct insightful research on the B&R Initiative, enterprises that have the financial capacity and intention to invest in B&R projects, investment agencies, professional services providers, consuls of B&R countries in China, as well as representatives from relevant government bodies, chambers of commerce and industry associations. All members bring productive resources to bear, and contribute their own unique values. As the initiator of the platform, PwC is dedicated to sharing the full range of resources and practical experience sourced from across our expansive global network.
Following a period of strong development, the Belt & Road is now the largest cooperation initiative in the world, and with huge potential still untapped. We believe every country stands to benefit from the initiative, and by continuing our role as an enabling influence, we hope to help seize the moment by working together with you to be a constructor, contributor and beneficiary of the Belt & Road Initiative!
