Report summary

The gravitational shift from China's east to west is well underway reinforcing the country's long term Go West policy. The 'One Belt One Road' strategy introduced by President Xi in 2013 aims to encourage people and capital to migrate from the coast to the western provinces opening up new markets in Central Asia and beyond with a new Silk Road for the 21st century. The plan is ambitious but also comes with risks.
