PSSI is launching a new project focusing on China

17.05.2018

PSSI is pleased to announce the launch of its newest project - Comparative Analysis of the  Approach Towards China: V4+ and One Belt One Road (OBOR).

China's charm offensive across the Visegrad region and the Balkans has been unprecedented in recent years. Despite the difficulty facing these regions in striking the proper balance between potential challenges and opportunities, improved relations have, nevertheless, started to develop at a rapid pace via a plethora of mechanisms. This unfolding reality has not only been reflected in higher trade volumes and people-to-people exchanges, but also in Chinese investment projects targeting strategic industries.

For China, the Balkans and the Visegrad region represent a gateway to larger European markets. While some stakeholders recommend taking full advantage of opportunities stemming from China´s rise, there is a dearth of discussion on the national security implications of such increased trade and capital flows.

Find more information about the project here.

This project is supported by the International Visegrad Fund.

Project partners include Institute of Asian Studies (Slovakia), HAS Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Institute of World Economics (Hungary),  Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence (BFPE) (Serbia), and Centre for International Relations (CIR) (Poland).
