Media Coverage | June 19, 2017

In an interview with the South China Morning Post, Cameron Munter, President and CEO of the EastWest Institute, said that China's trade push in Afghanistan would "make an enormous change in the way countries in the region see one another."

Munter was speaking during an international symposium in Beijing last week, which was co-organized by EWI's Afghanistan Reconnected Process. The conference—the first one dedicated specifically to the trade plan between Afghanistan and Beijing—focused on ways to unlock both Afghanistan's and the broader region's economic potential during a vital time of transition as well as on on fresh opportunities provided by China's Belt and Road Initiative.
