the Silk Road initiative

BusinessWeek says:

The UN Development Program’s Beijing-based Silk Road Initiative (SRI) wants to rebuild the old road which brought Chinese goods to Europe, with a view to sharing China’s prosperity with its western neighbors. Central Asia would contribute natural and human resources in return.

This is a great initiative and I am curious how it would turn out, curious if it would actually work, given the curruption, suspicion, bad roads etc. But it would however deliver great advantage to the Central Asian nations, if it were to lead to trade integration.
