The Human Face of Trade and Food Security


 As Asia's infrastructure competition unfolds, interest in how infrastructure investment is carried out has been rising.

China’s Belt & Road Initiative, which aspires to connect nearly two-thirds of the global population and 60 percent of its GDP, along with other infrastructure initiatives across the region have raised the premium on understanding different approaches. Join the CSIS Simon Chair and the Stanford Global Projects Center on December 18 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm for a conversation and presentation series comparing Chinese and western approaches to infrastructure investment.
