Major powers have been engaged in a new competition to build hard infrastructure - roads, railways, ports, etc, across the broadly defined Eurasian landmass. China's "Belt & Road" initiative is the most ambitious, with estimates of ultimate spending under President Xi Jinping's signature initiative as high as $4 trillion. But Japan has also announced a $200 billion "quality infrastructure" initiative, while ASEAN, India, Russia, Turkey, and other regional powers have their own visions for connectivity.

Mr. Goodman will describe a project he is overseeing at CSIS called Reconnecting Asia, which maps about 2000 infrastructure projects across Eurasia and tries to shed light on the economic drivers and implications of these investments, as well as the challenges they will face.

First 15-20 minutes is for networking
Light breakfast included
