The new silk road: what is in it for Europe

How will the new Silk Road initiative affect the European economy?

Date: January 14, 2016, 9:00 am Topic: Global economy and trade

On 14 January Bruegel, will organise an event at the China Europe International Business School in Shangahi to discuss the New Silk Road initiative and its impact on Europe.

China’s soft power is definitively on the rise. One of the key landmarks of such trend is the Silk Road Initiative, announced by Xi Jinping in November 2014. Since ancient times, the Silk Road has been a bridge between China and the West. In the same vein, the New Silk Road initiative and its related policies and funds endorse China’s desire to establish itself as a Eurasian power, connecting East Asia and Western Europe and opening access to Central Asia. How, however, will China’s new strategy impact the European economy?

The aim of this conference is to understand what the new Silk Road Initiative can bring to China and Europe as well as to the economic relations of these two major world players.

The event will be held at The CEIBS Lujiazui Institute of International Finance (CLIIF) in Villa B, No.15, Lane 2525, Riverside Avenue, Lujiazui, Pudong, Shanghai, P.R.China, 200120

How Chinese competition helps western conglomerates

Firms like GE and Siemens may well find that their decision to split their businesses into multiple companies leads to increased profits and higher stock prices. But recent research indicates that this is not the only way conglomerates can boost efficiency.
