What is China’s new economic initiative One Belt One Road’s relevance to Davao and Mindanao?
The FCHCSI will hope to answer this by sponsoring a forum on July 15. This was the output at a planning meeting yesterday attended by FCHCSI officials and supporters.
Proposed to be invited at the forum tentatively set at the Davao Christian School are representatives from the Chinese Embassy in Manila, business groups with ongoing collaboration with Chinese firms and the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA).
OBOR is the economic and infrastructure development program of China to reconnect Asia with Europe through the old Silk Road trade route and the Maritime connectivity to promote prosperity in countries from China, east Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, Europe and Africa.
