Connecting China and the Middle East

Silk Road Finance & Technology Summit

Unite with business, political and societal leaders for breakthrough collaborations in finance and technology. Join us in shaping the future Silk Road with innovation and prosperity.

The Silk Road Legacy

The Silk Road symbolizes a deep-rooted partnership between China and Arab nations, fostering trade and cultural exchanges for centuries. Today, this ancient pathway is reborn, fostering a robust strategic partnership and paving the way for a new era of economic collaboration and mutual trust.

Mutual Political Trust

This enduring friendship, strengthened over time, culminated in the China-Arab States Summit in 2022, committing to a shared future and marking a new phase in China-Arab relations.

Deepened Economic Cooperation

The trade between China and Arab countries has soared from US$ 14.702 billion in 2001 to US$ 330.238 billion in 2021, a remarkable testament to their growing economic synergy, extending well beyond traditional trade.

Broad Prospects for Finance & Technology

With China’s investments in Arab countries now branching into sectors like biotech and green finance, there’s a shift from trade-centric relations to broader financial and technological cooperation, signaling a new chapter of partnership.

The Silk Road Finance & Technology Summit (SRFTS) emerges from this dynamic backdrop as a pioneering initiative, focusing on cross-regional finance and technology cooperation. SRFTS is more than an event; it’s a platform to shape the future of these critical sectors, driving economic relations into a new era of prosperity and collaboration.
