The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road, better known as the One Belt and One Road Initiative (OBOR), or more recently, simply the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), was first announced by President Xi Jinping in Kazakhstan and Indonesia in 2013. This massive initiative encompasses 65 countries with 4.4 billion people in all continents except the Americas. Although the roads mentioned in this project do not pass through the Czech Republic or Slovakia, both states declared their preparedness to join this initiative by signing the Memorandum of Understanding with China in cooperation with this framework in Suzhou in 2015. How the Czech Republic and Slovakia differ in their approach towards this initiative, and what each can offer for cooperation, is discussed in this paper.
