United Overseas Bank and HKUST IEMS launch “Belt and Road in Southeast Asia”


Hanoi, Vietnam


We are delighted to announce that United Overseas Bank and the HKUST Institute of Emerging Market Studies have launched a joint research project entitled “Belt and Road in Southeast Asia”. The aim of the project is to provide insights into the political, institutional, and environmental factors that affect Belt and Road project design and implementation, the potential for Belt and Road investments to spur private investment and foreign direct investment opportunities and effect transformative development, and the potential role of Hong Kong in the Belt and Road Initiative.

The project will produce an overview report and case studies on six Southeast Asian countries: Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Philippines. These case studies will be developed out of a combination of in-depth field research, literature and quantitative data on Belt and Road projects.

Further updates to the project will be posted on the Institute’s website at http://iems.ust.hk/uob.
