EU - China relations in 2021: challenges and responses

Registration has now closed.

The People’s Republic of China has recently overtaken the United States to become the top trading partner of the European Union. China and the EU increasingly work together across a number of policy areas and are constantly seeking to deepen their dialogue. Having said that, the interdependence between these two economic giants cannot fully disguise the presence of deep-seated problems, mistrust and rivalries in the broader relationship between Brussels and Beijing. As they seek to balance cooperation with competition, how can the two forge a mutually beneficial dynamic that, if not always devoid of challenges, is at least transparent and constructive?

Our speaker is His Excellency Ambassador Nicolas Chapuis, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to the People’s Republic of China.
