The Belt and Road Initiative

Over the past seven years, China has invested billions in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in which there are now more than 140 participating countries. While a number of projects were put on hold as governments grappled with the economic fallout of the pandemic, the BRI has the opportunity to help numerous countries emerge from the crisis stronger.

This section includes the annual survey of central banks in jurisdictions participating in the BRI – almost all respondents to which expect BRI projects to contribute to post-Covid-19 recovery.
