Southern and Eastern European countries to become Gateways
Companies from Europe and China will share their business experiences with the New Silk Roads during some international conferences in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands from October 9-10 in the Eindhoven region.
The Chinese Belt & Road project represents a potential shift in the way that goods are transported between China and Europe. Southern and Eastern European countries, such as Greece and Romania, try to develop themselves as gateways to and from China. Now, large parts of Western-Europe are predominantly supplied overseas via gateway countries like the Netherlands and Belgium. With the implementation of the One Belt One Road project, this will probably not always be the case in the future.
