Jinping, the Chinese General Secretary of the Communist Party,
introduced a new initiative in 2013 – aiming to revive the ancient
silk road. Back then, Georgia was not considered important along
the lines of official maps. Four years later, things have changed
fundamentally. Anyone speaking about the new silk road in China
knows about Georgia’s whereabouts – and certainly understands the
importance of Georgia to this epoch-making development.
