Please join the Project on Prosperity and Development and the Freeman Chair in China Studies for the launch of our joint report assessing China's One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative and the US' approach to infrastructure development. The report contrasts China's comprehensive, state-led OBOR initiative with the multiple instruments the US government and private sector deploy to support global infrastructure development. After revealing the reports recommendations for integrating these tools as part of a broader strategic approach to infrastructure development, our panel of experts and practitioners will share unique insights on topics related to capacity, financing, practical economic gain, and geostrategic ambition, as well as implications for Asian regional and global trade patterns and realignment.

This report and event are made possible by generous support from the GE Foundation.
