countries, 65% of the global population, and one third of the world's gdp. one belt one road is china's ambitious infrastructure project built around ancient trading routes. but it is also expensive and controversial. china says it is going to start a new age of inclusive growth for the world. but others are worried that beijing will use these economic investments to tilt the global balance of power in its favour. so, will the new silk road reshape global trade or is this just the beginning of china's great game? welcome to talking business. i'm karishma vaswani. china's new silk road is the brainchild of president xijinping. it builds on ancient eurasian trading routes but the scale of his new vision is nothing short of astounding. so, let's take a look atjust what it is. it is made up of two main trading corridors, one overland called the silk road economic belt, and the other by sea, known as the maritime silk road. the idea to build roads, railways, ports, and create a financial is structure and free trade zones all along these routes. there is also a key parallel project, the china

exporting into china and progress into the us next year. in terms of large markets, we have had a very positive response. i am sure there will be a few markets... for example, i used to work in sub—saharan africa. they may not know the diet as much. it may not be familiar to them. exactly, exactly. because i spent ten years of my life in the united nations in food, i feel i have a sense of which markets are right for piccolo. karen, you may go into a market where it's not enough, you may have to bolt something more on to accommodate cultural identity or cultural sensitivities. can you think of cases where that has happened? it's interesting. when brands look at expanding out of their core markets, they roll out on a geographical pattern... a regional basis. i do believe that geography actually isn't the core deciding factor of where to roll out to next. actually, those cultural nuances are really key and really important and it would not necessarily be a country next to each other that would be the same. for example, we work with hoffsted, which is a cultural institution, and we

equipment is from foreign countries, because from germany and china, we cannot buy much of them because of the financial crisis, but foreign inve5tor5 the financial crisis, but foreign investors can bring this equipment. and that is what the a5tana expo is for, the grand show that kazakhstan has put on for foreign investments. but that doesn't mean they find it any easier as i found out from california —ba5ed primu5 power which builds energy storage solutions. the local currency devalued in 2016 more than 65% which gives very negative effect on renewable project because all the equipment, even small bolts, are imported, and when in the investor comes there is too much uncertainty, the government did not 5et uncertainty, the government did not setup proper rules. uncertainty, the government did not set up proper rules. this is where you live? it is notjust inve5tors, many local5 also feel the strategy i5 many local5 also feel the strategy is not well thought out but few dare to speak out. this is when they sentence you to three years of no public speaking and not being able to

economy. we do not have the same global manufacturing opportunity china had in 1978. i do not think that is a good thing. i wish we had the same openness to trade and global chances china had for 30 years. india does not have that, so our trajectory of oui’ not have that, so our trajectory of ourjob market may be more domestic consumption than export and manufacturing. so you do not agree that, you know, there are statistics which show our unemployment rate is going quite slowly compared to the country in general? remark i disagree with that. you have added 200 million people to the labour force in the last 20 years and they have been absorbed somewhere. the jobs problem is notjobs. it is formaljobs, good jobs. i think jobs problem is notjobs. it is formaljobs, good jobs. ithink he makes a point. if you would get the job market, yes, 50% is self—employed and 30% is casual and 20% is formal employment. so i think he makes a point of saying that the biggest problem we have is in this 50 and 30% category where people probably earn less than 10,000 rupees a month, you know. and i think w

what was a significant decline. also, if you looked at the important economies of china and brazil, these economies also went through their own downturn at the same time. all of this came toa at the same time. all of this came to a head and the oil price came from $100 down to as low as $27 at one point and so that lead to that and it also happened at a time in a new government was coming in. all of that put together was what led to the situation we find ourselves in. but oil is 13% of gdp and my sense is that it is important to the extent in that it is 70% of the government's overall revenue but there's enough resilience in the economy that we have start to come out of it and the oil price has picked up. is the economy resilient? 0rdeal being a small proportion of gdp but almost everything in nigeria depends on it. yes, it is to the extent that nigerians are the resilient ones that make nigeria resilient. we survive despite and in despite of government and in spite and despite of the economy. so nigerians will keep going until they can't any more. i think that is what we need to p
