In 2013, the Chinese central government launched the "One-Belt-One-Road" (OBOR) strategy, which refers to the initiative of jointly building the Silk Road Economic Belt, which links China with Europe through Central and Western Asia, and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, which connects China with Southeast Asian countries, Africa, and Europe.

The objectives of the OBOR strategy are to promote economic prosperity of the countries along the belt and road and regional economic cooperation, to strengthen exchanges and mutual learning between different civilizations, and to promote world peace and development. The strategy also underlines the government's push to export China's technologies and production capacity in industries such as building materials (steel and cement), electronics, infrastructure (highways and high-speed trains), and logistics (ports and airports).

As a country's infrastructure plays a vital role in attracting and facilitating business operations, it is critical to find solutions to further develop infrastructures and promote collaborations among many of the countries along the two new Silk Roads. For example, governments may have limited resources and capacity to build and manage all the infrastructure projects on their own, especially with the recent slowdown in the global economy and worsening public finances in many developing countries. The private sectors have much of the needed resources and expertise. A Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) offers an alternative solution, and is jointly funded and operated through a partnership of government and a private enterprise so as to jointly develop infrastructures such as rails and roads.

一帶一路: 中國視角的全球化和對新秩序的探索

自2013年一帶一路倡議提出以來,「一帶一路」成為了中國社會的熱詞,也成為中國經濟外交的核心議題。然而,一帶一路的概念卻一直不甚清晰,給人以「宏大」而「模糊」的印象,似乎沒有人能夠精準的解釋和概括一帶一路倡議的全部內涵 。「什麼是一帶一路?」、「中國為什麼提出一帶一路?」、「各國該如何參與?」、「一帶一路給私營企業和個人帶來什麼樣影響?」等等一系列最基本的問題,似乎都沒有明確的答案,模糊的概念留下了巨大的解釋和討論的空間,也留下了猜忌和困惑。
