In December 1978, during the 3th Plenum of the 11th Plenary Congress of the Communist Party of China, Deng Xiaoping launched the now famous policy of reform and opening up (gaige kaifang). Thirty-five years later, in December 2013 General Secretary Xi Jinping announced a new initiative, known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BIR). Even a cursory comparison of European reactions to the launch of the policy of reform and opening up first, and of the Belt and Road Initiative next reveals several points of similarity.
The talk will describe the main features of the Belt and Road Initiative, and then present a factual account of early European reactions to the reforms announced by Deng Xiaoping, with the recent responses specific bodies of the European Union adopted towards the Belt and Road Initiative.
