Siemens is the perfect partner for BRI

Joe Kaeser, President and CEO of Siemens AG

China’s Belt and Road Initiative builds on the trend of promoting cooperation and mutual benefits. It presents a more open and inclusive image of China to the world, and brings increased opportunities for global economic growth and common development.


With a comprehensive portfolio, global footprint, leading innovations and financial solutions, Siemens can drive forward global cooperation and co-creation which will benefit all involved. By 2017, Siemens had joined forces with over 100 Chinese EPCs (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) to explore opportunities in more than 100 markets worldwide.

Siemens see great commercial potential from BRI

Lothar Herrmann, CEO of Siemens Greater China

Belt and Road Initiative has not only become a “hot word” in this era, but actually supported the growth of global trade, and provided strong impetus for the development of globalization.


Siemens highly recognizes the concept of the Belt and Road Initiative. “Global management team of Siemens has been attaching great importance on how to participate in the Belt & Road construction more actively," said Herrmann. In the process of jointly building the Belt and Road Initiative, Siemens is willing to establish in-depth partnerships, meaning that the enterprise is not only a supplier, but also a co-explorer undertaking risks and sharing success.

Winning connections beyond borders

Turkey, which spanning both Asia and Europe, was the destination of traders on old Silk Road in ancient times. As a crucial bridge linking the West and the East along the “Silk Road Economic Belt” today, Turkey has been actively participating in the BRI as a member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
