One Belt One Road in 2017: Continuing the Momentum

In 2013, the Chinese Government first initiated the "One Belt One Road" development strategy and framework; an initiative that focuses on connectivity and cooperation among countries along both the land-based "Silk Road Economic Belt" and oceangoing "Maritime Silk Road" which run from China through the continents of Asia, Europe and Africa.

At the start of 2016 we published an article providing a summary of our understanding of the One Belt One Road (shortened to "OBOR") initiative and reviewing the successes to date achieved in its implementation, focusing both on those in which we participated ourselves or those we had knowledge of in the market.  We now aim for this article to provide some further insight into the current status, and future direction of, the OBOR initiative, in particular considering the many events which have occurred in the last 12 months affecting OBOR. Key recent developments have included:

- new Chinese regulations on outbound funds flow which have created some uncertainty regarding certain Chinese enterprises' ability to export investment funds;

- the USA's withdrawal from the Trans Pacific Partnership, seen by some as a competing platform to the China-led OBOR initiative; and

- some recent high profile Chinese investments being scuttled by host countries' investment approval procedures.

Notwithstanding the ever evolving political and regulatory landscape, having worked with clients on numerous OBOR projects, we are of the view that 2017 is likely to see the OBOR initiative maintain its upward trend and continue to gain momentum.  This is supported by recently published official data as detailed below.
