LAUNCH CLINGENDAEL CHINA CENTRE


03 JUN 2019 - 12:41

 

 

BACK TO OVERVIEW

European governments, businesses and other stakeholders have started a serious, strategic debate on the growing role and influence of China in the world, including in Europe. Key issues include European responses to 5G, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, human rights, knowledge security, and industrial and competition policy. The Dutch Government has recently released their China Strategy arguing for: 

"Working with China where we can, and safeguarding our own interests and values where we must".


By launching the Clingendael China Centre we join our forces in the field of China expertise. Through our analyses, training and public debate we aim to inspire and equip governments, businesses, and civil society on China relations. Meet our experts.

 

Inspiring kick-off event

The Clingendael China Centre kicked off with an inspiring and interactive programme 'Talking China Strategy' on 3 June. During the day we received Dutch diplomats in the EU member states, Permanent Representatives in Brussels, Dutch policymakers at relevant ministries in The Hague, diplomatic representatives of EU member states in The Netherlands, China experts and EU experts.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
