Watch: Highlight reel from our event in Munich

The Munich stop of CEIBS 3rd Europe Forum 2017 focused on the topic Belt and Road Initiative: How Germany Benefits from China's Economic Growth.

With the global economy in a slow recovery phase, regional cooperation has become a driver of economic growth. In response to economic globalization, China introduced its Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to boost the prosperity of China and participating countries by focusing on economic cooperation through cross-border direct investment. During the forum, experts shared their perspective on the characteristics and trends of China's outbound investment in light of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Germany has long been a favoured destination for Chinese investors due to its investment climate and the complementary economic advantages between the two countries. Given this solid foundation for cooperation, how will China and Germany move forward on investments to continue further developing industrial integration and complementarities? Will the synergy between China's “Internet Plus” initiative and Germany's “Industry 4.0” strategy create new opportunities for cooperation?

CEIBS and CHKD invited top-level officials and experts from China and Germany, as well as a delegation of Chinese entrepreneurs and investors for this China-Germany Dialogue. The forum combined discussions centred on investment with case studies, providing insights into new business models and prospects for China-Germany cooperation as well as opportunities for interaction with enterprises from the two countries.

Keynote speakers included Jiang Jianqing, Chairman of the vitally important Sino-CEE Fund and former Chairman of ICBC; Romano Prodi, the former Prime Minister of Italy and former President of the European Commission; and CEIBS Vice President and Dean Prof. Ding Yuan.
