Home > International > NEW “SILK ROAD”


Who cannot  get excited about the Silk Road? Who has been there? I know of a few friends and it is on my Bucket List to ride out on a camel into the Gobi desert !
Afghanistan and its neighbors embarked on the Silk Road initiative to bring  prosperity and peace by linking markets across South and Central Asia. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Foreign Minister from Afghanistan Zalmai Rassoul, and Guido Westerwelle, German Foreign Minister are hosting talks in New York October 6th, 2011 to plan a  NEW SILK ROAD.
This meeting which will include participants from a number of countries will later continue in Istanbul.
A number of bi-lateral agreements already exist in the region despite some tensions…..but Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India will be among the more than twenty-two countries who are expected to be involved. 
Who is ready to go?
