Majlis Podcast: China's One Belt, One Road In Central Asia

This week's Majlis podcast looks at the effects of China's One Belt, One Road (OBOR) trade connectivity initiative on Central Asia.

The topic was sparked by a recent report from The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS) -- A Road To Riches Or A Road To Ruin? The Geo-Economic Implications Of China's New Silk Road.

Muhammad Tahir, RFE/RL's media-relations manager, moderated the discussion.

Sijbren de Jong, one of the authors of the report and a strategic analyst at HCSS, joined the Majlis from China. From Washington, Jonathan Hillman, director of the Reconnecting Asia Project at the Central for Strategic and International Studies, took part in the talk. And I was happy to say a few things on the subject also.
