Fourth CAREC Think Tanks Forum

With the topic of “Trading for Shared Prosperity,” the CAREC Think Tanks Development Forum convened over 100 participants from think tanks, academe, private sector, and governments to deliberate on trade expansion from increased market access, greater diversification, and stronger institutions for trade under the CAREC Integrated Trade Agenda 2030 in the context of heightened US–PRC trade tensions and expansion of disruptive technologies.

This forum provided an opportunity to the host city of Xi’an and the Government of Shaanxi province to present trade opportunities under the Belt and Road Initiative with special reference to the ancient Silk Road.
