Please be advised: This event will premiere LIVE on this page at 12:00 p.m. EST, Tuesday, February 16.

Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Nadia Schadlow and Eric Brown and Asia-Pacific Security Chair Patrick Cronin for a conversation with Eyck Freymann, author of the groundbreaking new book One Belt One Road: Chinese Power Meets the World.

One Belt One Road (OBOR) is about more than just infrastructure financing – it is a powerful vehicle of (often malign) influence aimed at extending the power of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). At home, Chinese-language propaganda pitches OBOR as an effort to rebuild the imperial tributary system in a modern form. In case studies of countries including Malaysia, Greece, Sri Lanka and Iran, Freymann finds that OBOR is successfully attracting neo-tributary partners, even when the underlying infrastructure projects lose money or never even come to fruition.

In this event, Schadlow, Brown, Cronin, and Freymann will discuss the strategic objectives and tactical playbook behind OBOR, explore how China's revisionist concept of the world order threatens American interests, and examine how Washington can compete with this ambitious agenda.
