Introduction​​​​​​​

In 2013, the Chinese government put forward an economic development strategy to connect continents and people together. Called the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), it comprises a so-called “Silk Road” based on the ancient network of trade routes that once connected China with Eurasia. The modern manifestation would link China with both Southeast and South Asia, Central Asia, Russia and Europe by land, and a 21st Century Maritime Silk Road – or sea route – to connect China’s coastal regions with those in Asia, as well as the South Pacific, the Middle East and Eastern Africa, all the way to Europe. The original priorities were listed as policy coordination; infrastructure connectivity; unimpeded trade; financial integration; and connecting people.

This was never going to be a straightforward exercise. And now, with the world faced with greater concerns pressing upon individual countries in the form of a global pandemic, a climate crisis or the urgency in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups Leadership Institute, together with HSBC, are proud to announce the HSBC Future Skills Development Project's Belt & Road Youth Forum, with the theme Sustainability on the Move.


This one-day online forum will engage government officials, industry experts and young people to build a more sustainable future under the backdrop of the BRI.


To be held online on Monday, 20th December 2021, the Forum will be from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. It will look at what we call the 4Rs:

Review progress of the SDGs within the BRI

Reset SDGs within the BRI under the current circumstances

Resolve problems with collaboration and innovation

Reconnect people

Please sign up, share your voices and contribute to the sustainable and inclusive development of the Belt and

Road Initiative.


Date: 20th December 2021 (Monday)
Time: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Venue: Online; zoom links will be provided for registrants
Language: English (some sessions may be in Putonghua)
