European Silk Road Summit 2022
Getting ready for a new chapter

On 19 March 2021, the China-Europe express celebrated its tenth anniversary of services. A year later, in March 2022, the Silk Road was facing a new reality. With a war waging in Ukraine, sanctions in place and routes blocked, everyone wondered about the future of Eurasian connections. Yet, the Silk Road, just like it did during the pandemic, proved its resilience. As we now move into a new decade of China-Europe trains, we also enter the Silk Road 2.0 phase. On 7 and 8 December, we will explore how the ever-shifting Eurasian rail supply chain is here to change and stay at the next edition of the European Silk Road Summit 2022, this time in Duisburg.
