China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its Impact on Global Supply Chain Management

The “One Belt One Road” (OBOR) initiative, first announced in 2013 by Chinese President Xi Jinping, is a highly ambitious and far-ranging initiative to improve the social and economic structure in Asia, Europe, and northeastern Africa. A major objective of the OBOR initiative is to improve the transportation infrastructure in the region. For example, the China-EU rail freight system will allow cargo to be transported in less than half the time it takes to ship by sea between China and Europe. This presentation will examine the challenges, and opportunities as a result of China’s OBOR initiative.
