Belt and Road Global Development Alliance (BARGDA)

Belt and Road Global Development Alliance (BARGDA)



Established on 12th May 2011, Dashun Foundation (大舜基金) is one of the leading non profit-making government-approved charitable institutions, having 70 advisors and over 500 Think Tank members who are university presidents, prominent academics, successful industrialists, community leaders and senior professionals from different sectors. It focuses on the economic developments of Hong Kong and the welfare of the elderly and younger generation. It aims to “Build a Better Hong Kong”. In our work, we will not comprise impartiality.


Launched by Dashun Foundation, BARGDA has the primary objective of facilitating enterprises, especially small and medium size companies, and professionals in Hong Kong to capitalize on the vast opportunities created by the national strategy “Belt & Road Initiative”. Being a multi-national platform, BARGDA plans to integrate organizations having fair and independent views, professionalism and capabilities to serve the community in Hong Kong in the process of global development in all facets with China Mainland and the ‘Belt & Road’ countries.


BARGDA is structured to build a friendly, interactive and sustainable platform integrating with business associations, industrial enterprises, professional bodies, community leaders and the academia in the “Belt & Road” countries. In Phase One, the Alliance will utilize Dashun Foundation’s strong and established network of human resources and focus on the opportunities arising from the “21st Century Maritime Silk Road” cities and provinces, ASEAN and South Asian countries. The Alliance will play an effective role in the coordination with Alliance Organisations and Associates on projects related to infrastructure, finance, energy, culture, education, innovation and technology, economic development, arts and creativity. We believe that the Alliance will create new spheres for cooperation, friendship and trust at different levels along the route of Maritime Silk Road countries.
