The Belt and Road initiative has been gaining attention internationally since its proposal. This study applies complex network theory to the Belt and Road countries’ exchange rate markets by constructing a correlation network for these markets using the detrended cross-correlation coefficient (DCCA cross-correlation coefficient). Results show that the Belt and Road countries’ exchange rate network (BREN)11Hereinafter referred to as BREN.exhibits a small-world effect and robustness. The network is divided into three clusters by factional analysis. The three clusters correspond to three regions: West Asia, Central Asia and Europe, and Southeast Asia. The cohesion subgroup density between Central Asia and Europe and West Asia is high, and the inter-correlation of the Central Asia and Europe is strong. Moreover, the CNY’s position in the BREN has been significantly improved since the policy was proposed.
