China’s Belt Road initiative aims to link cities in the maritime belt and inland roads along the new “silk route” that spans from Asia to Europe. The goal of the initiative is to promote cultural understanding and economic growth through co-operation between countries and cities to create a one united world.
Cultural Innovation and Trade will play a very important part in promoting understanding, innovation and economic co-operations.
With the emergence of the Belt Road initiative, the aim of this forum is to explore, share, discuss and strategize programs and initiatives where Creative and Cultural Enterprise and Innovation is relevant to both social and economic development for the different countries and cultures engaged in this initiative.
