This project is motivated by the growing scale and intensity of the economic relationship between the EU and China.
Bilateral trade between the EU and China reached EUR 428 billion in 2013, making the EU China’s largest trading partner, while China ranks second in the EU for the EU . As economic power and influence evolve at the global and regional levels, it is essential to understand the wider implications of this evolving relationship.
This 18-month project was launched in 2016 by four leading European and Chinese political institutes: Bruegel, Chatham House, Hong Kong Chinese University and China Center for International Economic Exchanges.
The project focuses on economic relations between the EU and China over the next decade, taking into account the future trajectory of these relations, including opportunities and challenges in the short and medium term.
The project involves key political communities in China and throughout Europe to stimulate debate and inform policy decisions on EU-China economic relations in the short to medium term.
The project is funded by Huawei and GlaxoSmithKline.
