Listen now to WACA's KNOW NOW conference call on Wednesday, December 2, at 2:00-2:30 PM ET, featuring Firoz Peera, board member and past Chair of the World Affairs Council of Charlotte.
The Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) is China’s ambitious multi-decade project to create a modern day version of the ancient Silk Road, a powerful route that provided the foundation for the very first wave of globalization across a vast Eurasian landscape. Mr. Peera will discuss the nature & scope of the BRI and its geo-strategic implications in this new age of great power rivalry.
Peera is a board member and past Chair of the World Affairs Council of Charlotte. With a strong interest in history and geopolitics, he has been an avid watcher of China’s ascendency to superpower status.
