Silk Road Economic Belt – (2016) Xinjiang Karamay Forum
With most of the world engulfed by the Olympic fires of Rio de Janeiro, northwestern China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region had a fiery Olympics of its own, in the shape of the “OBOR Olympics”. Everyone sitting in the VIP row at the Karamay Conference and Exhibition Centre came to Xinjiang’s “oil city” with faith, determination and big plans. They were not there to just shake hands and exchange business cards; and neither were they there to visit the world-famous Ghost Town. No. They were here to agree to disagree, to take action and to see results.
