China Silk Road Infra Fund
In its quest to boost businesses along countries and region, China's ambitious $40 billion Silk Road infrastructure fund has started functioning along the PE lines. The so called fund has already started operations, semi-official China Business News, quoting governor of the People's Bank of China (PBOC), said claiming that the fund is partially financed by China's foreign exchange reserves, with investors including China Investment Corp, the country's sovereign fund.

Other investors included China's Development Bank and The Export-Import Bank of China, two leading Chinese policy banks, which lend in line with government instructions. China has dangled financial and trade incentives, mostly to Central Asia but also to countries in South Asia, backing efforts to resurrect the old Silk Road trading route that once carried treasures between China and the Mediterranean regions.
