China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) aims at improving infrastructure in Asia, Africa and Europe to improve market access. Europe does not have comparable plans. Transport networks in Europe need modernisation. Particularly the east of the continent lacks up-to-date motorways and high-speed railway lines. How can wider Europe fill the infrastructure gap and tap the full potential of its huge home market? wiiw has analysed the issue and will present the outcomes at a press conference and panel discussion.
