About our speaker:

Dongsheng Zang is the Director of the Asian Law Center & Chinese Legal Studies and the UW and holds S.J.D. and LL.M. degrees from Harvard Law School and an LL.M. from Renmin University (Beijing).  He has written and spoken extensively on China related issues and recently led a panel discussion on the OBOR initiative.Type your paragraph here.

China, with considerable fanfare, has been promoting its One Belt One Road vision (OBOR) to its regional neighbors and the world.  It is an ambitious and innovative initiative with the potential to extend China’s influence across Asia by increasing economic, cultural, and military ties in the region.  US influence would be lessened, an important trade bloc created, and India would be increasingly isolated.  The plan is not, however, without potential problems and risks.  Many of the countries are under-developed and building and integrating ports, roads, and railways will be a mammoth, expensive undertaking with uncertain demand.  And while access to China’s trade network is appealing, these are sovereign nations whose interests don’t necessarily align across the board.  Please join us Friday, May 12 where Prof. Dongsheng Zang will reveal China’s plans and what they might mean for the region and the world.
