China's trillion dollar plan to dominate global trade
It's about more than just economics. To learn more, visit https://reconnectingasia.csis.org/map/ Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO China's Belt and Road Initiative is the most ambitious infrastructure project in modern history. It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view.

Blended Finance and Aligning Private Investment with Global Development - Report Launch
In partnership with the Danish Embassy in the United States, the Project on Prosperity and Development will be publishing a report entitled Blended Finance and Aligning Private Investment with Global Development. Over the past few decades, the composition of development finance has flipped from being primarily funded through public-sector resources to intensified interest and investment from the private sector. Blended finance is one method to unlock private capital for development, referring to structuring global development investment deals with a mixed portfolio of public and private funds to spread and smooth risk-reward profiles, “crowd in” catalytic private investment in sustainable financing, and create markets in developing and new contexts.

China’s Investment, Africa’s Forest
Chinese investments in African land use are growing fast. From small enterprises in forestry, agribusiness and mining, through huge infrastructure cooperation projects and contracts won by Chinese companies – in hydropower, port development, road and railway building – that gobble up forest and woodland. These developments can bring huge benefits to African economies and huge challenges to sustainability. One thing is for sure – they are changing Africa. But real understanding in both China and Africa, about what is really going on, is often weak - and those who can best help chart a sustainable course for these Chinese investments have been poorly linked. In 2013, IIED with partners launched the China-Africa Forest Governance Platform to tackle key problems in the illegal timber trade and seize opportunities for more sustainable Chinese investment in land-use sectors. The platform is a forum for projects aiming to generate evidence, strengthen capacity and dialogue, and improve policy and investment practice by Chinese companies in African forest land use. This 10-minute film tells the story so far. More details: https://www.iied.org/finding-green-path-for-china-africa

Boao Forum showcases nation’s development, investment opportunities.
Development and investment opportunities in Laos and the region along with the nation’s exciting potential have been showcased at the Boao Forum held in Vientiane from September 28-29. The synergies between the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the Southeast Asian region’s development strategy, especially significant development in Laos as a link between Asean and China, were tabled as important topics for discussion among participants. In his opening ceremony address at the forum, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Somdy Duangdy said the BRI is a path of peace, prosperity and civilisation, which would create favourable conditions to promote more effective trade, investment and visits between Laos, China and Asean. “The initiative complements the development strategy of Laos in becoming more connected, or transformed from a landlocked to a land-linked country,” Mr Somdy said. Domestic political stability, stable economic growth averaging 7 percent per year, the government’s efforts in improving legal issues to facilitate the investment environment, and infrastructure, especially the Laos-China Rail project, were covered by DPM Somdy. He noted that investment in Laos not only meant expanding into the nation’s market but also accessing the Asean market which has more than 600 million people. Secretary General of Boao Forum for Asia, Li Baodong conveyed his confidence in the future of economic and trade cooperation with Laos and the government’s encouragement and welcome for investors. He highlighted Laos’ political stability, social safety, its amity to neighbours and the abundance of natural resources such as minerals, hydropower potential, and forests. Mr Li noted that while Laos was categorised as a least developed country it possessed abundant development potential drawing much investment interest and is an attractive destination for tourists. Former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, Prof. Dr Surakiart Sathirathai agreed the Belt and Road initiative complemented Laos’ strategy to transform the country from a landlocked to a land-linked nation, noting the country as a central and significant location for both the BRI and Asean connectivity scheme. Mentioning Laos’s great potential in producing hydroelectricity, Dr Surakiart said it not only served development needs in the region but would also help propel the belt and road development projects in Southeast Asia. Dr Surakiart, who is Chairman of Asian Peace and Reconciliation Council (APRC), raised the importance of multilateralism, global mutual benefit, and existence between globalism and patriotism, noting the cooperation mechanisms in the region could further complement each other in building a strong framework for trade, development, and connectivity. He said the BRI and sub-regional cooperation could serve as an important mechanism and framework to enhance benefits for people in all areas such as agriculture, fisheries, industrial, tourism, and small and medium enterprises.

Why International Trade and Investment Are Good for the US Economy: A Story in Eight Charts
Cross-border trade and investment are an important source of economic growth. Consumers enjoy greater access to cheaper, higher-quality, and more varied goods. Increased trade creates higher-paying jobs and leads the most productive firms and industries to innovate and raise standards of living worldwide. This doesn’t mean every single person will be better off, but on balance, the benefits from international trade and investment outweigh the costs. The benefits to the US economy are narrated and visualized through eight charts, focusing on the significant expansion of trade and investment in past decades, the benefits to workers in export-intensive industries, the changing nature of trade in a globalized economy and the positive role of multinationals, how trade relates to overall unemployment, and trends in US manufacturing. This video is part of an effort by the Peterson Institute for International Economics to invigorate its dissemination of reliable economic data and analysis to the broad public on important issues of general interest.

Legal Capacity Building in International Trade and Investment Law
Developing countries are party to a multitude of international agreements in the field of trade, investment and economic cooperation. Most of these treaties seek to foster economic growth and human development. The negotiation, implementation and settlement of disputes under these treaties are increasingly complex. To have a voice, actively engage in and benefit from these regimes, domestic and international actors have, since long, realized that developing countries (as well as smaller stakeholders in developed countries) need technical assistance to build up legal capacity. The workshop aims at taking stock of efforts and methods utilized to date, discussing lessons learnt and formulating best practices moving forward. The goal is also to see where further cooperation and division of tasks may enhance effectiveness. Moving forward, a key goal of the workshop is to examine how new technologies (such as online courses/platforms or crowdsourcing) and developments in the field of legal innovation could make capacity building in international economic law more efficient and available to a broader group of beneficiaries.
