“The Silk Road did not give the expected results, the Assembly will decide whether to renew the agreement with China”

The Silk Road “did not deliver the results we expected, Parliament will have to make an assessment and decide whether to renew participation in this project”. This was expressed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Tajani, speaking at the Cernobbio Forum. “I’m leaving for China this afternoon on a mission – he said – we want to build a solid relationship with them, this is a common country but also a systematic competitor and if we want to compete we need rules that will ensure our country’s competitiveness” We want to do this, but we need to make an analysis about exports. If we analyze it, the Silk Road did not bring the results we expected: Italy’s exports to China reached 16.5 billion in 2022. 23 billion from France and 107 billion from Germany. We will have to make an assessment, Parliament will do that and decide whether to renew participation in this project.”
