Unforgettable travel experiences and new friendships
With these moving experiences in their hearts, the tour group finally reached the Autostadt. Numerous academics, media representatives, entrepreneurs and Francesco Forte, head of the Autostadt delivery centre, welcomed the much-travelled guests. Many convoy participants had to give interviews, as well as German and Chinese Volkswagen representatives. The long standing partnership of Volkswagen Group with the Chinese Joint Venture Partners was, of course, one of the most popular subjects.
The unforgettable travel experiences, new contacts and friendships were the main topic of conversation at a joint dinner. The idea of developing the "New Silk Road" was vividly discussed. While the once most important trade link between China and Europe aided the meeting of religions, ideas and whole cultures, modern roads, ports and rail connections will help bring about a revival of the Silk Road.
