China and Europe are getting closer and closer together when it comes to business...but nothing shows it more clearly than this: a mega railway project designed to connect Europe and China directly. Hungary is already helping in the planning.
At the 16+1 summit in Hungary, China further expanded its influence in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The EU is allowing Beijing to undermine the bloc, DW's Frank Sieren writes.
The first freight train linking China directly to the UK has arrived in the eastern Chinese city of Yiwu. It is part of China's drive to strengthen trade links with western Europe along a modern-day 'Silk Road.'
