Please join us for The Silk Road Summit – 2nd Annual Conference: Exploring Business, Trade & Investment Opportunities on the New Silk Road. Multiple initiatives are now converging to galvanize unprecedented investment activity focused on the infrastructure and trade links between Asia and Europe (Eurasia).

China has taken the initiative in capitalizing new development banks – the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Silk Road Fund – designed to modernize and expand the ancient Silk Road transport web that linked East Asia with the Mediterranean. China’s “One Belt – One Road” concept projects massive infrastructure expansion – on both the traditional land routes plus the Indian Ocean “Maritime Silk Road.” This is not a one nation project but involves a synergy of nations throughout Europe and Asia. America’s and Europe’s involvement are a key factor in bringing great technological and corporate resources to help build and develop the new Eurasian Highway.

This new economic push to link the countries of Eurasia by high-speed rail, expanded trucking routes, and modernized air and seaport facilities will open up huge investment opportunities, drive technology assistance programs, and generate a proliferation of new manufacturing and service industries in all the countries in-between. The 4,000-mile original caravan road linked ancient Chinese, Indian, Persian, Arabic, Greek and Roman civilizations and was later popularized by the Italians with Marco Polo’s trade initiatives with the Emperor of China. The modern Silk Road nations comprise a population of 3 Billion and a market that is unparalleled in both scale and potential.

The Eurasia Center/Eurasian Business Coalition will provide an overview of the extraordinary opportunities that are becoming available to countries, companies and individuals to become a part of what is arguably the Project of the Century. This event will allow you and your colleagues to interact with those officials and business representatives from China, India, Kazakhstan, and many other New Silk Road nations who are actively seeking contact with American companies, both large and small, to open communication channels and expedite trade, direct investments, and a wide range of business opportunities. There will be executives and representatives from U.S. corporations, and officials from U.S. Government agencies involved in trade promotion and overseas project financing. The Silk Road will allow for a deeper penetration of this vast market by US companies, many of which are not yet familiar with these regions and the new opportunities they offer.
