About us

Cooperans is a French consultancy specializing in connectivity projects between Europe, Asia and Africa.

We work on Belt and Road Initiative projects and other international, national and regional development strategies.

We advise NGOs, institutions, companies and leaders on their development strategy in Europe, China, and other regions where New Silk Road projects are in development.

We support social and environment-friendly projects. We believe that economic development and sustainability are strongly associated. We help our customers to adopt good governance practices.

Our history

Cooperans was born in 2015, and soon after began specializing in projects related to the New Silk Road initiative sponsored by China. Cooperans has acted to strengthen exchanges between European and Chinese companies, especially in the sustainable development sector.

The firm has also inaugurated the OBOReurope platform (One Belt One Road Europe) to share the ever-increasing developments of the New Silk Road. Our expertise in connectivity issues is well-recognized; our articles and speeches have been reported by major European and foreign media.

In 2021, Cooperans decided to go further with the New Silk Road initiative and to look at all connectivity projects across the world. Following the example of China and the New Silk Road, many states, cities, and regions have launched new initiatives to attract new businesses and bring prosperity to their communities. Cooperans has therefore chosen to support them in their projects.
