Retrospect and Prospect of
Belt and Road Construction Projects
Belt and Road Construction Projects
First launched by China in 2013, The Belt and Road Initiative (“BRI”) advocates the development of the international Economic Belt along “the land-based Silk Road and the Maritime Silk Road”, connecting the countries throughout Euro-Asia and beyond.
Based on the principles of “consultation and cooperation for shared benefits”, the initiative fosters the regional economic cooperation between China and the BRI countries, especially in the development of infrastructure. A multitude of railways, ports, airport, highways and bridges projects have been planned, constructed or even completed since, which further stimulate the successive diversified development of the countries concerned.
This being the eighth years since the launching of BRI. The international forum, which is organized by The Hong Kong Institute of Architects (“HKIA”), will have construction experts and scholars from Mainland China where this initiative originated, as well as people from the government, the business sector and the professionals from various BRI countries, to share their valuable experience in the implementation of the BRI infrastructure projects: to review the challenges encountered during the cooperation, to exchange their observations and to explore the way forward for future collaboration in the post pandemic era.
More speakers will be announced shortly.

About Organiser (HKIA)
The Hong Kong Institute of Architects
On September 3rd, 1956, 27 architects gathered and formed The Hong Kong Society of Architects. As the membership of the Society increased, recognition was given by Royal Institute of British Architects as an Allied Society. The change of name from Society to Institute was effected in 1972 and had initiated a new phase of activities for the Institute.
In 1990, The Hong Kong Institute of Architects Incorporation Ordinance (Chapter 1147) was enacted which governs the running of the Institute since then.
Today, The Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA) has more than 4,500 members and more than 190 architectural practices as corporate members. Apart from the Hong Kong office, the Institute also operates a representative office in Beijing since 2006.
In addition to the responsibilities of architects as professionals under law, members of the Institute are governed by a Code of Professional Conduct. This Code aims to provide the standard of professional conduct and self-discipline required of the members of the Institute in the interest of the general public.
