Regional Dimensions of the Belt and Road Initiative

Conference on EU-Asia relations

The Belt and Road Initiative is an important element of international trade, whereby Eurasia becomes an integrated economic area. This initiative will undoubtedly have a significant impact on trade opportunities between East Asian and European markets. The conference entitled ‘Regional Dimensions of the Belt and Road Initiative’, organised by the Antall József Knowledge Centre in partnership with China-CEE Institute, is the third instalment of Antall Centre’s ‘New Geoeconomic Prospects between Asia and Europe’ conference series. It aims to examine how the initiative will bring about the development of regional economic and trade processes and how the affected regions become involved in wider global trade processes. With the involvement of international experts, the conference provides a scientific discussion on the impact of this trans-continental initiative on East Asian countries and its perception in the European Union and the East Asian region.
