Major Project: The New Silk Road
Panel Discussion on Sino-European Cooperation
Thank you for two interesting roundtables with expert insights and lively discussions!
The panel discussion took place at the Intercity Hotel,
Mercatorstraße 57, Duisburg, and was open to the public.
Since 2014, one section of the New Silk Road rail route has directly connected Chongqing in central China with the city of Duisburg in the heart of Europe. What is the significance of the OBOR initiative for Sino-European cooperation? Participants from three different continents came together in Duisburg to explore this issue.
