27 representatives of Polish universities attended the workshops hosted by the Chongqing Jiaotong University – the largest university in south-western China. The event was organised under the ‘One Belt One Road’ Polish-Chinese academic consortium of 23 universities from Poland and China (aiming mainly at intensifying the academic cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European countries under the New Silk Route Initiative – the Belt and Road Initiative).
