Learning and Teaching Resources related to the Belt and Road Initiative

In 2013, the Chinese President Xi Jingping raised the initiative of jointly building the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road (hereinafter referred to as the Belt and Road Initiative) that connects Asian, European and African countries. The five major goals are “policy coordination, facilities connectivity, unimpeded trade, financial integration and people-to-people bond”.

 

Taking into account its competitiveness, Hong Kong can play a unique role in the development of the Belt and Road Initiative. Its participation in the initiative, in turn, can inject new momentum to the continuous social and economic development of Hong Kong. Schools in Hong Kong can facilitate students’ better understanding of the Belt and Road Initiative through related subjects and learning activities so that the students will be equipped to grasp the opportunities generated.

 

Below are the reference materials of seminars and workshops, and web links related to the Belt and Road Initiative and the learning and teaching resources web links of the Personal, Social and Humanities Education (PSHE) Key Learning Area (KLA) for reference:
