  • Fatma Bilgin Kapadokya Üniversitesi



China, Central Asia, One Belt Road Project, Investment


Founded in 1949, the People's Republic of China was subjected to a strict socialism practice for a long time, but after a while, when it was realized that the continuity of the system would not be ensured, a plan called 'Reform and Opening Up' policy was followed in 1978, and as a result, a great economic progress was achieved. The 'One Belt Road Project', announced by Chinese

leader Xi Japing at Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan in 2013 in order to advance economic growth targets, is an important project prepared to change the economic and geopolitical balances in the world. The aim of this study is to establish a region between China and China in the Central Asian Geography, which includes a significant part of the project. It analyzes the countries' cooperation, political attitudes and investments supporting the project.
