We want to discuss the threats and opportunities of Chinese investments in European technology and European investments in China

ECIPE in cooperation with VDMA cordially invites you to join a discussion on EU-China investment relations. In the context of the proposal to establish an EU investment screening framework and the ongoing negotiations of the EU-China investment agreement, we would like to discuss the threats and opportunities of Chinese investments in European technology and European investments in China.
  • How do European technology companies benefit from Chinese investors?
  • What are the risks identified by European policymakers? And how do companies assess these risks? Are there differences in opinion?
  • Which particular features distinguish Chinese investors from other investors, e.g. investors from the US and Japan?
  • Which technology sectors are particularly sensitive regarding Chinese investments in the EU and vice versa?
  • What’s in the making in Brussels with respect to investment screening?
  • What are the investment conditions for European companies in China and what must be done to ensure that European companies in China are treated equally with domestic companies?
