Photos: Belt and Road Connected: Invest Philippines

Investors gather in Manila for a day of lively debate on the key opportunities and challenges as the Philippines looks to find its place in China's Belt and Road Initiatives.

Understanding China's Belt and Road Initiative is key for any investor seeking opportunities in Asia at the moment. But what does China's landmark initiative mean for emerging countries in the region?

That's the topic of a series of FinanceAsia events in the months ahead. The first, Belt and Road Connected: Invest Philippines, took place in Manila on January 30.

A range of guests gathered to debate a host of hot-button issues surrounding development in the Philippines and China's potential role in it. In order to ensure full and frank debate, we adopted Chatham House rules.

Speakers included representatives of the Philippine government, as well as the private sector.

We'll have more reporting from the debate in the days ahead. Today, we present a gallery of photographs.
