Event Agenda

Economic Policy

The relationship between China and the EU is multifaceted. On regional affairs and climate change, both share many interests and cooperate as partners for peace, stability and sustainable development. The world’s two biggest traders, China and the EU share the responsibility to uphold multilateralism and work together on many economic and sectoral issues, and to promote growth that will benefit citizens from both sides. Bilateral people-to-people exchanges on education, for example, have helped assert the EU’s soft power among the most brilliant minds among China’s next generation. Admittedly, challenges remain bilaterally, especially in trade relations, such as China’s policies on industrial subsidies. While the Sino-US trade war adds uncertainty, Covid-19 may hamper the ambition of the EU-China relationship, too. What opportunities are there now for EU-China relations? How can both sides work together to help the world’s economy bounce back after the pandemic?

In the run-up to the 22nd EU-China Summit, Ambassador Zhang Ming, Head of the Chinese Mission to the EU, will take stock of the EU-China relationship over the past year and set out China’s vision for the next stage of bilateral relations.
