Chinese President Xi Jinping is hosting a two-day summit to win support for an ambitious economic project designed to transform world trade.
The “One Belt, One Road” initiative is a modern take on the old ‘silk road’.
Marco Polo pioneered the route from Europe to Asia around 750 years ago.

So, how will it change global trade, who will benefit and can it succeed?
