Emerging trade routes between Europe and Asia – Impacts of China’s Belt and Road Initiative on Northern Europe
DATE: Tuesday 20 November 2018, at 9:00 – 14:00
VENUE: Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 Brussels, Belgium
The Forum showcases recent research, policies and business initiatives in Northern Europe focusing on Euro-Asian railway connections and the Arctic maritime connections. The event features two knowledge arenas consisting of expert and practitioner interventions followed by decision maker comments and a moderated discussion.
The Northern Dimension (ND) is a joint policy of four equal partners: the European Union (EU), Russian Federation, Norway and Iceland aiming at supporting stability, well-being and sustainable development in the region by means of practical cooperation. The Northern Dimension Future Forums focus on issues, trends and challenges that will shape the future developments in the Northern Dimension priority themes (environment, transport & logistics, culture, and health & social wellbeing) throughout the ND area and need to be somehow addressed in all the ND countries and beyond. They serve as knowledge exchange and brainstorming platforms connecting researchers, academic experts, NGOs, business and policy-makers.
The ND Future Forums are organized by the Northern Dimension Institute in collaboration with the four Northern Dimension Partnerships: Northern Dimension Environmental Partnership (NDEP), Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being (NDPHS), Northern Dimension Partnership on Transport and Logistics (NDPTL), and Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC). The organization of the ND Future Forums is financially supported by the European Commission/DG NEAR and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. For more information visit: northerndimension.info
