Are developing BRI and combatting global climate change mutually exclusive? 

A webinar to combine two of the most pressing current global issues; boosting the global economy, and tackling Climate Change. 
Prior to the spread of the pandemic the BRI was offering a welcome opportunity for the global economy but how can these BRI projects support rather than negate global efforts to tackle Climate Change? Is it realistic or just ‘green wash’ to hope that BRI projects can be made truly environmentally sustainable? Will profits be placed before global warming? To discuss these issues we have three expert speakers: 

Jinny Yan is Managing Director & Chief China Economist for ICBC Standard Bank. Jinny is an experienced China Economist and China product specialist with a demonstrated history of working across client-facing roles of the banking industry. Her work focuses on China macro, fixed income markets, and she initiated the BRI Indices at the Bank in 2017. Jinny is an experienced speaker in the media and at large conferences.
