Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Belt and Road is a development strategy and framework consisting of two main components, the land-based "Silk Road Economic Belt" and oceangoing "Maritime Silk Road". It will fully rely on the existing dual and multilateral mechanisms of China and relevant countries, and with the help of existing and effective regional cooperation platforms, the Belt and Road Initiative aims to borrow the historical symbols of the ancient Silk Road, hold high the banner of peaceful development, and actively develop the economic partnerships of countries along the line as they work together to create a community of interests, a community of destiny and a community of responsibility for political mutual trust, economic integration, and cultural inclusion.

Since the Belt and Road involve many policies and countries, companies need to consider internationalization, as they will face more risks and more complex financial management. This Special Issue will explore similar questions and problems. Our proposed research topics include: big data management risks, competitive risk, credit risk, debt default risk, investment return risk, investment security risk, market risk, operational risk, risk analysis, risk modeling, and project risk management. This Special Issue not only has very good practical significance, but can also provide references for future related research.

We warmly encourage researchers, teachers, students, engineers, academics as well as industry professionals from all over the world to present their current insights in this Special Issue.

Thank you,

Best regards,

Engineering procurement and construction (EPC) is a normative practice globally approved since China has been engaging in international cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) infrastructure development. EPC has been adopted in the delivery of BRI infrastructure projects in other countries. Compared to the domestic method of contract, EPC remains at a low level in management practice, such as a lack of coordinating diverse project stakeholders, high cost of information communication, and risk in complex environments in West Asia (WA). However, no research has conducted a strategic analysis of the current situation of EPC for BRI infrastructure projects in West Asian countries. This study aims to understand the current status quo of EPC for BRI projects in WA by performing a strength, weakness, opportunity, and threats (SWOT) analysis and with the support of data collected from the literature review and semi-structured interviews with EPC stakeholders. The study brings awareness along which internally and externally circumstances of the EPC for BRI infrastructure projects can be perceived by major stakeholders participating. The four critical strategies presented based on the SWOTs identified could help EPC firms develop and promote EPC to implement BRI infrastructure projects in WA at the strategic level. Full article
