About Us

ACIES is a platform focusing on the interconnectedness of Austria and China in the fields of economics, politics, science, education, and culture. On behalf of the Austrian government, the ACIES Society is responsible for deepening and promoting the political and economic relations between Austria and China as well as strengthening the bilateral economic relations with an emphasis on the so-called ‘Silk Route‘.
The network enables its members to participate in panel discussions and conversations with decision-makers from the People’s Republic of China, provides support regarding questions on visa applications, and arranges individual business contacts to Chinese as well as Austrian companies.
On January 30th, 2019, ACIES will be hosting the first panel discussion on the subject of the trade war between the U.S. and China as well as its implications for the European economy. Further information on the event is available here.
