BTJ 6/16 - Focus: Going East - Baltic ties with Asia

Connections between the major European and Asian civilizations started more than 2,000 years ago, thanks to the diligent and courageous camel caravans that explored and... 

... opened up what's today known as the ancient Silk Road.

Nowadays, Europe and Asia are once more trying to enhance connectivity, this time with the use of modern transportation, in order to boost trade, investments, and economic development, as well as to improve diplomatic relations, scientific progress, and cultural exchange for all countries and regions across the Eurasia continent.

The 6/2016 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Focus section features also:

  • All roads lead to Beijing. Setting the world's agenda with the New Silk Road, by Przemysław Myszka

On paper the chief goal of the so-called One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative is making China and Europe the twin engines of future-proof global growth thanks to improving connectivity, increasing trade and investment, tightening financial integration, as well as strengthening international relations. On the other hand, some suspect that what's believed to be the signature legacy of China's President Xi Jinping’s tenure has its unstated or even denied objectives. This way or another, the Baltic, and particularly the south-eastern part, has its stake in playing Beijing's game.
