The new global projects put forward by China such as the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, which combined make up the One Belt - One Road (OBOR) initiative, create new opportunities for developing of Georgia's economy. Georgia finds its place in one of the corridors, the Central Asia-West Asia Economic Corridor of the project which creates principally new ways for the development of its economy. Georgia can play the role of an economic hub in the OBOR project as it already has free trade agreements in place with both the EU as well as China.
