The New Silk Road: Geopolitical Dynamics, Infrastructure Developments and Logistics Clusters

The 9th annual international Norwegian Risk Forum took place on October 18 at the Grand Hotel in Oslo. NRF 2018 examined: The New Silk Road: Geopolitical Dynamics, Infrastructure Developments and Logistics Clusters. We welcomed leading experts from China, Kazakhstan, Georgia and Norway on geopolitical dynamics, infrastructure developments and logistics clusters and decision-makers form leading companies, ministries, think tanks, universities and organizations. Through a range of informative and insightful presentations, interactive panel discussions and intimate networking sessions we raised awareness about the challenges and opportunities that emerge along the New Silk Road.

China’s One Belt One Road also known as the new Silk Road constitutes the largest infrastructure strategy in history. With a range of infrastructure projects both on land – One Belt - from western China across Central Asia, the Middle East, Russia and Europe and along the sea route – One Road - from China through Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Persian Gulf, African coastline to Europe – the new land-based and maritime Silk Road transform the infrastructure and economic landscape across the Eurasian continent and the maritime port infrastructure from China to Europe. Currently more than 80 countries engage and estimates indicate that China plans to invest more than USD 1000 billion.

Norwegian Risk Forum 2018 examined the New Silk Road and participants learned about geopolitical dynamics in China, Central Asia, Russia, Caucasus and the Middle East. In addition we examined how infrastructure developments and logistics clusters transform supply chains, distribution channels, transportation networks and trade corridors across Asia.

We look forward to welcome you to the 10th annual international Norwegian Risk Forum in Oslo on October 17 next year.
