Five years have just passed since the Chinese leader Xi Jinping announced the rise of the New Silk Road.
One Belt, One Road Initiative – because this is the official name – has a global dimension. It is to connect China with the countries of Central Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. Over 60 countries, including Poland, take part in it. Beijing plans to spend 100 billion dollars to stimulate trade and investment in this project.
The international scientific conference organized by the Center for Asian Research of the Academy of Finance and Business Vistula will be an opportunity to reflect on the historical inspirations of this initiative, the present situation and scenarios for the future.
The New Silk Road – it’s a huge opportunity and challenge, cooperation, but also competition. The project has an impact on the fate of individual countries, groups and people.
