Major Project: The New Silk Road
Since 2014, one section of the New Silk Road rail route has directly connected Chongqing in central China with the city of Duisburg in the heart of Europe. What is the significance of this major project for Sino-European cooperation?

The Forum will be opened by H.E. Bolat Nussupov, Kazakhstan’s Ambassador to Germany.
The panel discussion will take place at the Intercity Hotel, Mercatorstraße 57, Duisburg, at 2.30 p.m. and is open to the public. Please register by email by Friday, October 5: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone:
