Belt and Road Weekly Investor Intelligence, #38

Posted by Reading Time: 2 minutes

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

This week’s Belt and Road Investor Intelligence has a strong emphasis on Central Asia and Russia, as both China and Russia step up to fill the gap left by the changing situation in Afghanistan. Uniting Central and South Asia is a key theme (as is Russia’s part in this) in the negotiations for a trade, investment, and cooperation agreement between India and Iran. There is a lot happening in the region, with significant changes in the works to improve future interconnectivity of the entire Eurasian landmass.

We also look at how Russian companies may find solutions to US financial sanctions impacting company bank account opening in China and examine the future of Chinese wealth management services by foreign financial institutions.
