Belt and Road Summit 2017

Nel 2017 The European House – Ambrosetti e il China Development Institute hanno organizzato a Venezia una conferenza di alto livello per discutere le strategie di mutuo beneficio e le opportunità di investimento generate dalla Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) che catalizzeranno lo sviluppo di nuove attività industriali in tutta l’Eurasia (Cina, Sud-est asiatico, Asia meridionale, Asia centrale, Medio Oriente, Europa).

“Belt and Road: Seize the Next Wave of Growth in Eurasia” è un Summit esclusivo di alto livello della durata di un giorno e mezzo che ha visto la partecipazione di stakeholder chiave asiatici ed europei con l’intento di valutare le più importanti opportunità di business generate dalla BRI. Al Summit sono stati presentati e dibattuti anche dati attuali e approfondimenti sulla Belt and Road Initiative. Gli argomenti trattavano i settori economici maggiormente interessati dalla BRI e significativi per i rapporti euro-asiatici.
