Belt and Road Initiative

The Belt and Road Initiative is a far-sighted vision for inclusive international co-operation in the 21st Century unveiled by President Xi Jinping in end 2013. Hong Kong is a key link for the Initiative.

It comprises the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt and the ocean-going 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, spanning countries across different continents. The core principles of the Initiative are “five areas of connectivity”, namely policy co-ordination, facilities connectivity, unimpeded trade, financial integration, and people-to-people bond.

The Belt and Road provides new impetus to the global economy and opens up a wide range of unprecedented opportunities for Hong Kong to play to its strengths as highly connected, global financial centre and professional services hub with robust government-to-government, business-to-business and people-to-people links all along the Belt and Road routes from Asia to Europe and beyond.
