The Dragon in Europe

Joris , NL

I have always been fascinated by the relationship between China and Europe. We are bound by our history, trade, and traditions.

In this video, I seek to highlight the richness of the Chinese culture and the way how China affects our daily lives in Europe. It shows the diversity of ‘China Unlimited’ in different countries and cities in Europe; from culture to politics and business.

I hope you enjoy it!

  3. Great video!

    If I may ask, how did you get that footage of the Chinese Prime Minister?

    • Hey Maddow,

      Many thanks for your comments.

      I knew the Chinese Prime Minister would be at the EU-China Business Summit in Brussels this year. So, I went there to take my video.

    • Hey Hanna,

      That footage was actually captured here in Brussels. It is a Chinese Opera, called ‘The Grand Canal’, which is about the creation of a large canal in China during the Tang Dynasty. It is a great opera, which well reflects the visions, efforts, and intrigues of that time.

      If you can, go watch it!
