The 3rd China-CEE conference will take place October 6 – 7, 2017 at Lake Ohrid in Macedonia. The magnificent and spiritual Lake Ohrid is a UNESCO world heritage site with 365 historical orthodox churches around the lake for every day of the year.This year's conference topic is: "The role of human capital in the One Belt One Road initiative". The conference is also supported by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the 16+1 Think Tanks Network.

               The 3rd China-CEE conference continues with its interdisciplinary tradition of bridging the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and China in myriad areas – from language and culture, to education, business and international relations. The conference’s main theme looks at the role of so-called “human capital” within the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative. In doing so, we want to go beyond the traditional understanding of OBOR, as simply an initiative seeking to strengthen inter-regional cooperation and development through trade, investments and infrastructure. A crucial determinant of OBOR’s success are the people along it and people-to-people exchange leading to mutual understanding and co-development. We believe that building human capital within China’s biggest international economic development initiative linking 64% of the world population and some 30% of the global GDP is an essential factor of OBOR’s long-term success (Huang, 2016).
