The New Silk Road Is Rising
The New Silk Road Project is a first of its kind expedition to stretch the entire length of the Silk Road Economic belt. Starting in London and finishing in Yiwu (Easter China), the team will visit over two dozen infrastructure projects along the way. The goal of this expedition is to help build a clearer picture of the change that is happening across this region.
Devonshire-Ellis is an advisor to the New Silk Road Project team and provides regular commentary on the political and trade aspects of China’s Belt & Road Initiative as the team continues on their journey.
