Topic

China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative: Implications for restructuring global supply chains

China’s “One belt, one road” initiative has the potential to transform global supply chains, especially among Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The supply chain linkages are embodied in the Silk Road Economic Belt and New Maritime Silk Road. The initiative is aimed at internal Asian economic development, a process never significantly supported by the countries of Asia or by external actors, especially in Europe and North America. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is the financing vehicle for intergovernmental cooperation, thus serving as enabler of the development process and expansion of infrastructure. This seed money supplements even larger sums from governments and private sector actors who will supply most of the capital. Key infrastructure components include railroads, telecommunications, and ports, all to be integrated by sea and by land. Successful implementation of this initiative will accelerate Asian development and lead to greater internal Eurasian economic integration and restructuring of global supply chains. Innovative global companies need to find ways to participate in the “One belt, one road” initiative and develop supply chain strategies that leverage the emerging restructuring of transportation, communications, and ports.
