Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road

Title

Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road

Subject

Twenty-First Century Silk Road

Description

The "Silk Road Economic Belt" and "21st Century Maritime Silk Road" is a new initiative by the Chinese Government to bolster trade across Asia, Europe and Africa. Whereas the "Maritime Silk Road" passes from Southern China through Western Asia, the Middle East and East Africa, the "Silk Road Economic Belt" transits through Northwestern China and Central Asia to reach Turkey and, ultimately, Continental Europe.

Although the vast "Silk Road Economic Belt" is anchored in Central Asia, the project is frequently referred to as a trade and tourism-building partnership between China and Continental Europe.
