Picture Gallery for One Belt One Road Summit

Photos from our recent One Belt One Road Summit which was held on the 24th October in the O’Donoghue Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway.

The One Belt One Road initiative is a foreign policy and economic strategy of the People’s Republic of China.

Among the speakers at the summit were H.E. Dr. Yue Xiaoyong, Chinese Ambassador to Ireland, Patrick Edmond, Group Strategy Director and Managing Director of IASC (International Aviation Services Centre) at Shannon Airport, Austin Currie, Director of Focus Consulting, Seamus Grimes, Emeritus Professor at NUI Galway and Conor O’Dowd, Audit Director at KPMG.

The ‘One Belt, One Road’ term derives from plans introduced by the People’s Republic of China President Xi Jinping in 2013, designed to economically link Europe to China through countries across Eurasia and the Indian Ocean.

The event is in partnership with KPMG, Galway Chamber of Commerce, Irish Chinese Society Galway and in conjunction with MSc International Management in the Discipline of Management at NUI Galway, where students have developed expertise in China-Ireland business relations through their annual business simulated trip to Hong Kong which is led by MSc Programme Director, Dr Josephine Igoe and Dr Denise Holland, Lecturer in International Management. Students from this programme presented their research from Hong Kong and volunteered at this event.
