The First China-CEE Development Forum

Exploring Innovative Approaches to Win-Win Cooperation between China & CEE in Light of the Belt and Road Initiative

China regards Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), a potential driver of European economic growth, as a significant partner and destination for investment. Under the Belt and Road Initiative and 16+1 cooperation framework, both sides will step up their cooperation in areas such as economy and trade, investment, infrastructure construction, finance, energy, tourism, education, agriculture, cultural exchange and regional partnerships in order to facilitate mutually beneficial exchanges and innovation outcomes.

In today’s globalized world, China-CEE cooperation must move beyond traditional industries like energy and infrastructure toward areas critical to people’s well-being. Therefore it is imperative for China and CEE to find answers to the following questions: What lessons can the bellwethers in emerging sectors learn from others’ successes in order to grasp strategic opportunities from the Belt and Road Initiative? How will the countries along the Belt and Road align the strategies for their dominant industries with the Belt and Road Initiative in order to maximize the advantages and interests of both sides? How can China and CEE leverage their industrial differences to develop an innovative and sustainable cooperation framework that achieves win-win results?

The 2017 Europe Forum in Poland will centre on the theme "China-CEE Cooperation for Mutual Benefit and Win-Win Results" and include a discussion of topics such as Infrastructure Construction, New energy, and E-commerce. Senior leaders in political, business and economic circles from both China and CEE will share their insights on new approaches to China-CEE cooperation aimed at achieving mutual prosperity.
