The New Silk Road and China’s Initiatives in Northeastern Europe

University of Tartu Asian Centre and Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies is proud to present an open lecture "The New Silk Road and China’s Initiatives in Northeastern Europe" by Christer Ljungwall.

China’s economic and political clout in Europe is growing. The New Silk Road initiative promises extended cooperation with countries across Eurasia, including Estonia. What plans do Chinese leaders have for this part of the world? How will the "northern corridor” through the Arctic change trade flows? And how will this effect political relations? Dr. Christer Ljungwall is uniquely positioned to answer these questions.

Time: 21 of March 16:15 
Place: Lossi 36-214

Dr. Ljungwall lives in Shenzhen where he works for Peking University HSBC Business School (PHBS). He is partner at ENC International Advisory Group. In previous positions he has served as Head of Office of Science & Innovation Embassy of Sweden in China, Sr. Economist at Asian Development Bank etc.
