The China-EU dialogue is about to enter a new phase after years of summitry and rhetorics. To follow up on past week's visit by Barroso's delegation to China and the upcoming re-start of the High Level Economic and Trade Dialogue, ECIPE invites you to a lunch seminar with a presentation by Dr Xiaotong Zhang , Deputy Director at the Mission of China to the EU.
Due to the number of the large interest for this event, we have moved to a larger venue at the Goethe Institute, Rue Belliard 58 (few blocks west of ECIPE offices) and opening for further registrations. Those who already registered (and who were not able to register) do NOT need to re-confirm. The event starts at 13h00 as previously announced.
Dr Zhang will present his newly published thesis, “EU’s Trade Relations with China 1975-2008: A Linkage Power at Work?” which explores the interaction between the two rising world powers over almost 30 years.
What are the lessons to be drawn from the history of their relationship – and how effective are EU’s strategies towards China? What is China’s view on economic ties and integration with the EU? What will the future dialogue between China and EU entail? You are cordially invited to take part of the presentation and the following discussion.
