New York, NY, July 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- US$3,000,000,000,000.00 (US$3 trillion) is budgeted for development projects around the world. Started in China in 2014 as "One Belt, One Road" initiative, it's now much more than physical connections. It has grown to become the world’s platform for economic growth including project coordination, trade and financing collaboration, and social -cultural cooperation. It is the Belts and Roads Initiative America (BRIA) presented by the not-for-profit, 501c3, HEBRASIA Institute, Inc. of New York.
BRIA Forum Chairman, Jonathan Kendall, invites interested participants to the 2017 BRIA Forum in New York City on 27 July 2017. Jonathan said, "I am honored to Chair this special event to explore the opportunities for American business, government and finance that the One Belt, One Road (OBOR), now called the Belt and Road Initiative, will bring to the world. We see BRI America as a critical element that goes well beyond ports and rails and into the transference of ideas and innovation to re-craft the world economy. It's a converged physical infrastructure, a digital infrastructure and a financial infrastructure. The budgets are in-place, the projects need to be planned, designed, implemented and managed."
China has budgeted US$1.7 Trillion for projects from Asia to Europe; the USA has budgeted US$1 Trillion for development; and smart investment bankers and VC's are adding to the funding mix with billions of their own. The budget is close to US$3 Trillion for projects from roads to communications to healthcare.
The “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI) was conceived by the Chinese government to improve trade and economic integration across Asia, Europe, and Africa. The initial strategy envisioned free-trade agreements and infrastructure projects – including roads, ports and railways – to create a modern Silk Road spanning some 65 countries, which have a combined gross domestic product (GDP) of US$21 trillion. The concept included a land “belt” through Eurasia, and a maritime “road” to connect coastal Chinese cities to Africa and the Mediterranean, but not the Americas.
How will North and South American companies, cities and people benefit from this investment and these enormous international projects in construction, infrastructure, tech, finance, legal, energy, education, health, entertainment, media, culture, supply chain, logistics, etc? The BRIA Forum will be a "How-to" event with speakers and participants who have successfully created business in both directions. And some who have not made it work with their perspective and analysis. Meet, network, learn, and do business with this exclusive group at the BRIA Forum. The BRIA Forum will be held in New York City on 27 July 2017. Use the URL briaforum.com to find out more and to register.
