Background

In 2013, the Chinese Government initiated the concept of the “Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road”, known as One Belt and One Road, and now known as the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ (BRI).

As a globalisation project, the BRI has far-reaching implications for trade, transport infrastructure, and logistics in the ASEAN region; for example it is expected to exert multi-dimensional impact on global supply chain routes and maritime connectivity.

RMIT University Vietnam and ZheJiang University China pleased to host the 2018 BRI Conference: Connectivity in Asia: Trade, Transport, and Business. The BRI Conference 2018 invites speakers to further explore the impact of the Initiative, and develop relevant challenges and responses.
