Opportunities for European companies along the Silk Road


The Belt & Road Initiative (BRI), formerly known as the One Belt One Road initiative, was developed by Chinese authorities back in 2013 as a transcontinental long-term policy and investment program. It aims to develop infrastructural developments and accelerate the economic integration of countries who lie along the historically famous Silk Road.

What is the Belt & Road Initiative? How can we characterize EU-Russia-China relations? Which business opportunities are there to discover for European and Russian companies? To answer these questions, the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) is happy to announce their joint webinar organized together with the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Russia (CCBLR): “Opportunities for European companies along the Silk Road” on 4 May 2021 at 11:00 CET (17:00 CST). Two prominent speakers on geopolitics and economic intelligence, Mr. De Primis and Mr. Gabuev, will deliver speeches and go into conversation with each other on what the new Silk Road can mean for your business.
