It’s been over five years since the Belt & Road Initiative was launched by China’s President Xi Jinping, but it’s still unclear whether Poland and the wider Central & Eastern Europe region will truly benefit from it, or if the area will be consigned to ‘corridor’ status between China and the ‘Blue Banana’ part of Central-Western Europe.

How will capital flow in the future?
People use a lot of buzzwords to predict the future and describe the potential paths the world of finance may take as it continues to evolve. Much of it seems to be just talk, but there are also real patterns emerging that point to an increasingly efficient and democratic future for the financial sector globally.

We will take you for a ride along the paths of the future and show you if and why traditional financial institutions might lose ground and where new solutions might emerge from surprising sources.

Tunnelin tekijät -sarjassa on seurattu visionääri Peter Vesterbackan ja hänen tiiminsä haavetta rakentaa tunneli Helsingistä Tallinnaan. Podcastin viimeisessä jaksossa kootaan ajatuksia yhteen: mitä länsimetrosta on opittu, miten pääkaupunkiseudun asuntopulan voisi ratkaista ja vaatiipa Peter vielä puolen tunnen tunnin junaa Turkuun ja Tampereelle.

Kuka olisi voinut kuvitella, että tunneli Helsingistä Tallinnaan voisi olla totta jo muutamassa vuodessa? Tunnelin tekijät -podcastissa pelialalta tuttu visionääri Peter Vesterbacka tiimeineen kertoo, miten ainutlaatuinen hanke toteutetaan ennätysajassa yksityisellä rahalla.

Tunnelin rakentaminen ei koskaan helppoa. Peter tiimeineen onkin kohdannut monenlaista vaikeutta. Erityisen hankalaksi Helsinki-Tallinna -tunnelin tekee se, että merenpohjan tarkkaa koostumusta ei tiedetä. Onneksi Suomessa on maailmanluokan osaamista. Peter tiimeineen on päättänyt, että pora iskeytyy kallioon jo 2020.
