The New Silk Road is an ambitious project launched by Chinese President Xi Jinping for the creation of an extensive network of communication and transport infrastructures across 65 countries. It has therefore become one of the most important public projects of the 21st century

In this context, the work analyses the role that Spain can play in this New Silk Road. It includes economic, commercial, historical, political and strategic perspectives that allow the reader to understand in depth the opportunities and challenges that this route may entail. It also provides practical recommendations that may be useful for politicians and companies. 

This work is part of a wider project called 'Spain and the New Silk Road: opportunities, challenges, recommendations', which has been developed by the University Institute of European Studies at the CEU San Pablo University with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, and which has had the collaboration of experts, academics and business people.
