Feb. 22th --- One Belt, One Road initiative

15 February 2017

The EU-Asia Centre together with the Confucius Institute of the VUB invite you to a panel discussion on the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative. With the EU and China demonstrating many common areas of interest including free trade, regional security and climate change, OBOR takes on new significance as a catalyst for EU-China relations. The EU has reacted positively to OBOR and is now exploring various joint projects. But how is OBOR viewed in the Member States? How is it viewed by the media and experts?


To discuss these and other questions you are invited to a panel event on 22 February from 1100-1230 in the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels.
