原文标题：Poland on the Silk Road in Central Europe: To Become a Hub of Hubs?
Poland expresses a positive attitude towards the Silk Road initiative,which is perceived as a means to expand Polish exports to China, attractChinese investments, and speed up Poland’s reindustrialization throughsynergies between the OBOR and Poland’s developmentstrategy. Poland’s goal is also to become a Silk Road hub, at least in CentralEurope. This active approach is noticeable in the plethora of high- andlow-level bilateral meetings and signed memorandums under the Silk Roadframework. Nevertheless, no specific project has so far been launched since theOBOR announcement. To date, China has rather recast existing projects under theSilk Road name, with a prime example being the Lodz–Chengdu cargo train line.Prospects for potential future results were proclaimed by the announcements andconcluded memorandums during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Poland inJune 2016. The Silk Road was included in the declaration about upgradingChinese–Polish bilateral ties to the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
