April 12 | World Affairs Council of Charlotte | WACC Voyagers Club with Firoz Peera

China is on a mission to recreate a modern-day equivalent of the ancient Silk Road with its Belt & Road Initiative (BRI). As planned, it will be the largest infrastructure project the world has ever seen, and will create a land and maritime trade-based network across the Eurasian landscape from East Asia to Western Europe and south to Africa.
