The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is an initiative which aims to boost trade and development, strengthen infrastructure and spread the benefits of digital technology. In this exclusive event, Bloomberg brings together key executives and top money managers to discuss what opportunities exist for European businesses, what risks and challenges could impact each region, specifically and how the initiative might help to develop a smarter, more sustainable model for cities.
Mistra Geopolitics co-director and senior research fellow at Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Karl Hallding, will be a panelist in the session, Driving Sustainability within Belt and Road Projects. This panel will examine how BRI projects can promote sustainability and have a positive impact on local ecosystems and communities. How can banks and institutional investors be certain that their interests support sustainable development? How can innovation and technology improve quality of life in the communities that are developing a Digital Silk Road? How can Belt and Road countries develop a new smarter, more sustainable model for cities to more efficiently use resources?
This panel discussion will take place on 2 April from 10:35 to 11:05 am BST. Watch it live on the Bloomberg livestream site.
