A group of journalists travel across China, following the famous and ancient old Silk Road to witness the trading link’s revival. The route that originated in this country once connected Europe to Asia. Now, under the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, the Chinese government is seeking to recreate a modern-day “New Silk Road”. Key industrial centres are undergoing an economic boom and major megacities, and their residents are seizing the opportunity to develop new business and contribute to the cause.
Modern China is a unique mix of cutting-edge technology and centuries-old tradition. It takes pride in its booming economy and rich cultural heritage. In many ways, China owes its complexity and versatility to the Silk Road, an ancient trade route established in the 2nd century BC that for hundreds of years initiated cross-cultural interaction between Eurasian civilisations.
