New Silk Road: Opportunities and Challenges for Supply Chains

WSL Forum, an in­ter­na­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic con­fe­rence took place in Poznan, Poland on November 18th and 19th, 2019 with mo­re than 100 par­ti­ci­pants from Europe and China at­ten­ding.
After the ope­ning of the con­fe­rence by Prof. dr. Andrzej Korzeniowski (Rector WSL), Norbert Wagener (Professor at WSL and Managing Director WAGENER & HERBST) and Tong Zhu (World Bank Beijing) pre­sen­ted the ope­ning speech on ‘New Silk Road Europe-China: Opportunities for Global Supply Chains and Challenges for Further Development’.
According to the speakers, the dy­na­mic growth of trans­ports on the Europe-China re­la­ti­on shows that the con­tai­ner train con­nec­tions, in ad­di­ti­on to ships and air­planes, have firm­ly es­tab­lished them­sel­ves as trans­port al­ter­na­ti­ves, es­pe­ci­al­ly for time-sen­si­ti­ve and less pri­ce-sen­si­ti­ve goods.
New chal­len­ges are the re­duc­tion of sub­si­dies in China and the con­ges­ti­on of bor­der crossings, es­pe­ci­al­ly bet­ween Poland and Belarus.
The es­tab­lish­ment of gate­ways and in­ter­na­tio­nal cor­ri­dor ma­nage­ment as well as other in­fra­st­ruc­tu­re in­vest­ments are pro­ving to be so­lu­ti­ons for fur­ther growth.
The pre­sen­ta­ti­on can be down­loa­ded he­re.
