The event will commence with a bell ringing to celebrate the launch of the KraneShares MSCI One Belt One Road ETF (Ticker: OBOR) and follow with an educational program featuring experts on the OBOR initiative. “The OBOR initiative may see upwards of $6 trillion in investments across the 68 participating countries (which represents 30% of global GDP)1”, said Jonathan Krane, CEO of KraneShares. “The Summit will raise awareness of the significance of the OBOR initiative to the global economy and how it is reshaping trade and international connectivity”.

The agenda will focus on the economic and investment trends that will impact the sectors involved in the OBOR infrastructure development plan. Keynote Speakers will cover topics such as how the initiative can accelerate China’s global economic advancement, facilitate renminbi (RMB) internationalization, and impact the GDP growth potential of the participating countries. Speakers include Dr. Liang Hong, Chief Economist and Director of Global Research at CICC, Dr. William H. Overholt, Senior Fellow at Harvard University’s Asia Center, Dr. Steve Sjuggerud, Editor of True Wealth and True Wealth China Opportunities, Stuart Doole, Managing Director of New Product Research at MSCI, with others to be announced.
