One belt, one road

China is currently investing a lot of financial resources in new plans to improve connections between Asian countries and Europe. You may already be familiar with the famous Silk Road, which has been around for some two thousand years. In 2013, the Chinese government announced plans to completely revamp and expand it. The project was named “One belt, one road“. Belt in this case stands for the land routes leading from China to Europe and the Middle East. Road in this case refers to the Maritime Silk Road that connects China with South and Southeast Asia, Europe and Africa. In short, three continents are involved in these plans, with two-thirds of the world’s total population.

Currently, though, a train already runs along this route, making it possible to send containers by rail with a transit time of 14 days. The further plans made within the “One belt, one road” initiative are going to take many more years, with talk of thirty to forty years. The goal is for all countries involved to benefit from even better connections.
