    In 2013, China unveiled its plan to reinvigorate the ancient Silk Road which connects Asia and Europe with modern infrastructure.

    The plan, known as “One Belt One Road” has become a priority of China’s foreign policy and its geopolitical coverage extends to countries and cities around the globe. Although it is too early to judge if China will achieve its goals, it is beyond doubt that the Belt and Road will affect Europe. The aim of this panel debate is to better understand the Belt and Road initiative and the opportunities and challenges it poses to the EU, its member states, and European businesses in terms of geopolitics, economics and security.
