Event description

Description

The US needs a holistic and coherent Infrastructure Diplomacy to maintain its global leadership position. This event will bring together key public and private sector actors to help design and successfully implement policies to deliver economic benefits to the US while ensuring peace and development for other regions. The event is part of a series organized by the Silk Road Working Group including the Silk Road Infrastructure Development Roundtable in Washington in October 2015, the Silk Road Summit in Washington in September 2016 and the Silk Road Investment Forum in London in April 2017 as well as several Working Group Meetings. These events have featured enthusiastic participation by US Government agencies, dozens of foreign Embassies, multilateral organizations, private sector firms and non-governmental organizations.
