Overview

Under the Belt and Road Initiative, China collaborates with partnering countries to initiate international mega-sized infrastructure development projects, aiming at boosting their economy and services. In practice, similar to the construction projects in Hong Kong, these types of construction projects often experience significant project delays and budget overruns due to a lack of proper management of resources and stakeholders.
