The OBOR initiative aims to reach:
- 71 countries along the land and maritime routes.
- An aggregate population of 4.5 billion.
- A total nominal GDP of $23 trillion, representing 65% of world population and 34% of the global GDP in 2016.
This morning I had the pleasure of attending the ringing of the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange thanks to Kraneshares who has an ETF investing in companies benefiting from the OBOR initiative and yes the ticker is OBOR. Their China ETFs are an interesting way to get exposure to the Chinese markets and also getting diversification.
