The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, also known as the One Belt and One Road Initiative (OBOR), or the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), is a systematic project proposed by the Chinese government to connect Eurasia. The goals of the project are to promote economic prosperity of the countries involved, promote regional economic cooperation, strengthen exchanges and mutual learning between different civilizations, and promote world peace and development.


The BRI aims to promote connectivity between Asian, African, and European continents and seas. The BRI follows the principles of the UN Charter and upholds the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence: mutual respect for each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, mutual noninterference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence.
