Belt and Road Initiative

China’s hugely ambitious US$900 billion Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for developing both the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road spans more than 68 countries across Asia, Africa and Europe, encompasses 4.4 billion people and accounts for up to 40% of the global GDP. Importantly, this initiative will create enormous investment opportunities and generate massive wealth particularly in developing countries.

Cedrus not only has strong global capabilities but also offers unique value to companies and institutions seeking access to the highly sought-after China and the broader Asian markets.  We have also established business relationships and partnerships with Belt and Road countries locally in order to facilitate deals related to BRI.  With extensive experience in achieving delicate, measured balance between opportunity and risk, and delivering performance in all market environments, Cedrus can properly evaluate various situations and provide companies with specific advisory and other services, together with management and operation support, pertaining mainly to cross-border transactions with Belt and Road countries.

By integrating our local resources with extensive international experience and global networks, Cedrus has built reputable local teams in China with profound knowledge of ecosystems of various indigenous industries. In addition, Cedrus has established valuable multi-level partnerships with local entities, and solidified itself as the trusted advisor and facilitator of cross-border businesses and capital flows between China and countries abroad, with a focus on fast-growing markets such as major Belt and Road countries.
