Cross-border deals necessarily entail increased risk arising from economic, political, legal and financial circumstances. The Belt and Road Initiative, which seeks to knit together 65 disparate countries into a loose quilt of operational efficiency brings these issues to the fore. Cultural and legal diversity, varying attitudes toward corporate governance and best practices, and manifest commercial opportunity all fuse to render risk management a lynchpin of successful investment in the Belt and Road countries. This seminar will seek to highlight the general principles of risk management, with particular reference to the BRI countries, emphasising that risk management can also lead to value creation, if handled transparently and with an eye to repeat transactions. Moreover, Singapore's own experience with these issues and the legal community's role in upholding the highest standards can be transformed into a competitive advantage as BRI projects move forward throughout the region. This seminar will seek to draw on the expertise of our legal community, with a view to leveraging it for both the region and in the context of the BRI.
