With China reaching the peak of its global trade and establishing its leading economic position, opportunities for collaboration with the country are becoming even more abundant. The recently planned One Belt One Road (OBOR) will not only create a vast network of physical connections with the rest of the world, but it will expand the state of international relations, creating the world’s largest platform for economic cooperation. This will allow partnering countries to collaborate on the coordination of policies, trade and financial contracts, and social and cultural cooperation. The two main components of the plan, the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, will connect major economic hubs in Europe with their Asian counterparts and stretch across a variety of industries.
As China continues to invest in Eastern Europe we currently research the historical background, the current state of relations and the future opportunities for Western and Eastern European SMBs on how to successfully participate in the multi-billion project, whether it is a high-speed train connection from Budapest to Belgrade, the Black Sea road link from Turkey through Bulgaria to Romania, or Chinese car manufacturers setting up foot in Bulgaria or Romania.
We are looking for a Program Manager who will support us in developing projects and programs related to the New Silk Road and the Chinese market. Criteria include relevant PhD or Master degree, fluent Mandarin and English, plus a major Eastern European language. Job posting here.
