Which has pioneered the proposal for the European Land-Bridge and related global “Great Projects” for the past four decades, has produced a new Special Report, The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge. The 370 page report, available in hardcopy and electronic format, is a blueprint for global development for the twenty-first century and beyond.
Civilization has reached a cross-road, where the threat of war has returned in a manner unforeseen in recent times, but where the prospects for a new paradigm of global cooperation towards genuine development have also reached a potential breakthrough.
With the initiatives coming from the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) and allied nations like Egypt and Argentina, mankind is on the threshold of a new form of cooperation among nation-states working towards the common aims of mankind. At the Fortaleza, Brazil BRICS heads of state summit in July 2014, the member nations, along with the nations of South America and the Caribbean, agreed to create a New Development Bank, one of a network of new credit institutions to finance major infrastructure projects in the areas of transportation, energy, agriculture and scientific research and development. Chinese President Xi Jinping has placed the highest priority on the New Silk Road Economic Belt and the New Maritime Silk Road, linking the Asia-Pacific region to Western Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The report provides an in-depth analysis of the crucial challenges to be overcome for genuine global development on a scale unknown in human history, including water management, nuclear and fusion power, high-speed and maglev transportation corridors, and the necessary new financial institutions to make this possible. The report details twenty of the most pressing international development projects on the agenda for the next several decades, such as the New Suez Canal, the Nicaraguan Canal, the Trans-aqua project for central Africa, the Bering Strait Tunnel linking Eurasia with the Western Hemisphere, the Kra Canal in Thailand, and high-speed rail connectivity across Africa, South America, and Central Asia.
