Reviews

“The Belt and Road Initiative is expected to have major economic and strategic implications not only for China but also for other regions and continents. The prospects of new trade and cultural ties could enhance opportunities for development and stability in these regions. There is much to be learnt from the recent exponential growth of the Chinese economy. In this context, this in-depth research volume will be of great interest and value to policy makers, management practitioners, the business community and research scholars interested in this field.” (Dipak C. Jain, European President and Professor of Marketing, China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Shanghai, China)

“The Belt and Road initiative is a state-led undertaking involving multiple countries and many organizations of various types with unprecedented scale for political, economic, and social impact. So far, literature has not paid sufficient attention to such a project that may exert great impacts on international business. Most studies on the BRI take a political or economic approach, whilst few examine it from a business and management perspective. Thus, this book which takes a business and management approach, will help readers to gain a novel understanding of the initiative.” (Shaomin Li, Eminent Scholar and Professor of International Business, Old Dominion University, USA)

“This book offers a broad assessment of the Belt and Road Initiative. Going beyond typical economic and political analyses, the book explores the impact of BRI on management, business, society and the environment. One important insight offered is that the overarching goal — trade, transportation, infrastructure, and communication connectivity — requires an understanding the socioeconomic diversity and heterogeneity of the affected countries. In addition to its broad coverage, the book is a product of collaboration by international scholars that offer regional perspectives such as China, Turkey, Central Asia, South Asia, West Asia, and Africa. Researchers, policy-makers and entrepreneurs will gain a pragmatic understanding BRI, allowing them to benefit from its development.” (Shu-Chun Susan Yang, Senior Economist, Development Macroeconomics Division, Research Department, IMF, USA)
