Silk Road Briefing provides global and regional intelligence to assist and monitor infrastructure, geopolitical, and structural developments, along with foreign investment opportunities along China's Belt and Road Initiative.

The Belt and Road Initiative now includes 140 countries with China spending over US$4 trillion on infrastructure projects and sovereign loans since 2013.

We provide analysis and opinion on the legal and tax positions, free trade agreements, double tax treaties and free trade zones being developed throughout the world as part of the Belt and Road plans.

The website draws on our considerable first-hand experience dealing with FDI into and from China, Russia, India, Africa, in addition to Central and South-East Asia, and is researched and written by professionals at Dezan Shira & Associates - Emerging Asia's primary professional services practice.

China's Belt and Road Initiative has developed over the years to include the Digital Silk Road, and important post Covid diplomacy with the Health Silk Road. New trade routes are opening between China and Central Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America - Silk Road Briefing examines how these new BRI corridor's function and where project builds can later equate to sustainable cash flow generation.

BRI total trade rose 27.5% in H1 2021 to reach US$826 billion. Our understanding of China's outbound investment policies and how these impact on global supply chains and dynamics is a crucial part of our Silk Road Briefing research. Our experience in the market can provide you with the business intelligence you need to understand and learn how to get involved in this immense undertaking, and at the very least observe how the BRI is changing global geopolitics.
