Marsh & McLennan, one of the world's largest insurance and reinsurance brokers, has opened a new representative office in Dubai. The office is specifically dedicated to following up Chinese investments in Africa and the Middle East.
These regions are part of the One Belt, One Road Initiative (the New Silk Road), which requires an investment of USD 126 billion in the construction of railway lines, pipelines, ports, and various other infrastructure. The New Silk Road will connect China to the rest of the world by land and sea, and Dubai is a key point on the route.
