    Location: 

    Pierce Hall 100F, 29 Oxford St., Cambridge, MA

    Harvard-China Project Research Seminar Series

    In 2013, China’s President, Xi Jinping, proposed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), sometimes alternatively labeled "One Belt, One Road." The State Council authorized the BRI action plan in 2015 with two main components: the land-based “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the ocean-based “21st Century Maritime Silk Road”. The belt and road together are intended to strengthen China’s ties to more than 60 countries of the Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, Mediterranean Sea, and Europe. The initiative is part of China’s major strategy to increase its outward investment in infrastructure building, develop new multilateral financial instruments, and facilitate economic cooperation in the Eurasia region.  

    In this seminar, Prof. Weidong Liu, Professor in Economic Geography, Assistant Director, and Chair of the Center for the Belt and Road Initiative, Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Science, will discuss the Belt and Road Initiative, including its implications for energy and environment in China and Eurasia.  Read more about Unpacking China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Its Energy and Environmental Implications

    Albert H. Gordon Lecture presented by Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Finance Minister of Indonesia

    Against the backdrop of the New World Order, characterized by the rise of nationalism and protectionism, Indonesia has shown renewed commitment to global cooperation, while aggressively pursuing shared prosperity to improve the lives of all its people.  Given its economic relevance and its strategic geographical position, what happens in Indonesia matters to the world.  Indonesia is home to a quarter billion people, is the world’s largest predominantly Muslim nation, and is a member of the G20 with a trillion dollar economy. What is the response of Indonesia to the New World Order? How can global leaders respond to current events without destroying the engines of global prosperity?  Read more about Albert H.
