讲座摘要:With the launch of the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative in 2013, China has the ambitious goal of transforming regional political and economic landscapes over the coming decades by building a ‘Silk Road Economic Belt’ and a ‘21st Century Maritime Silk Road’. Massive investments into these infrastructure networks have already taken place. For the land-based routes, eleven Chinese cities have successively opened direct railway container services to European cities, and most of these services are enjoying subsidies from the local governments. For the oceangoing routes, in recent years Cosco Pacific Limited has continued to invest heavily in the Port of Piraeus (Greece), transforming it into an important hub port in Southern Europe. Against this background, one of my research compared the performance of two emerging routes connecting the East Asia and Europe developed under the One Belt One Road Initiative with the traditional Sea-Land route. The route performance under current status and possible future scenarios have been intensively discussed and the results provide strong managerial and political implications on the choice criteria and route preference considered by different target groups. Another research of mine explored the coping strategy for Chinese liner shipping companies, taking into consideration of the impact of the rail development in East Europe and New Eurasian land bridge. A bi-level optimization model is established to realize this objective with real data collected from COSCO, the giant Chinese shipping liner. Furthermore, under the Belt and Road initiatives, more Free Trade Agreements are expected to be concluded and more Free Trade Zones will be established, it is expected that the effective import tariff rate may continue to decrease in the future. My co-authors and I have also conducted an analysis on the impact of further reduction in Chinese import tariff rate on major economic indicators using a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and based on the Chinese macro-economic data of 2012. In this presentation, I will briefly introduce these three researches conducted by my co-authors and me to address the trade and shipping development under One belt and One Road Initiative.
