City Corporation puts London on Belt and Road map

LONDON, June 13 (Xinhua) -- The City of London Corporation said Wednesday it would launch a publication to promote London as the "natural western hub" of the Belt and Road Initiative, which could add up to 1.8 billion British pounds (2.4 billion U.S. dollars) annually to UK gross domestic product (GDP).

City of London Corporation Policy Chairman Catherine McGuinness will present the "Belt and Road: London on the Map" to senior Chinese financial figures during a visit to China next week, where she is travelling to speak at the Lujiazui Forum in Shanghai, said the City of London Corporation in a statement.

The publication, to be launched at a Wednesday reception in Beijing, presents for the first time how firms from the UK financial and professional services (FPS) sector are involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, including Standard Chartered, HSBC, Linklaters, Clifford Chance and UK Export Finance, bringing together specific examples of projects underway in countries along the initiative.

It also highlights London's strengths as a hub for the soft infrastructure required by the Belt and Road Initiative, with the aim being to advertise London as the ideal partner for companies involved.

Partnerships between UK and Chinese firms can support infrastructure development in the near 60 countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative, according to the statement, especially collaboration on projects and initiatives in third countries where British and Chinese strengths are complementary.

McGuinness said the publication shows specific examples of how UK firms are active in the Belt and Road Initiative, and explains clearly how they can further be involved.

UK Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific, Mark Field, said Britain welcomes the potential opportunities the Belt and Road Initiative could bring as a means of driving global growth and enhancing development outcomes

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
