The sixth meeting of Central and Eastern European Countries and China, the so-called 16+1, ended in Hungary with big numbers.

China pledged more than three billion U.S. dollars in funding for development and investment projects in the region.

A new freight train service was launched from Budapest to China’s Hunan Province, running more than 10.000 kilometers and facilitating trade.

CGTN’s Aljosa Milenkovic explains this shift to the east.

To discuss:

  • Grzegorz Kolodko, a former Polish Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance
  • Tamas Matura, founder of the Central and Eastern Europe Center for Asian Studies
  • Anton Fedyashin, a professor of history at the American University
