China Taiwan Rapprochement – What This Means for Europe and its Businesses

Venue: Institution of Mechanical Engineers, 1 Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London, SW1H 9JJ
Speakers: Sheng-Chung LinnSir Thomas HarrisnNicholas WinsornRazeen SallynJonathan FenbynDouglas FullernGuy de Jonquieres
Time: 14:30

ECIPE London Conference

Since 2008, political and economic relations between Taiwan and mainland China have considerably improved. A substantial number of investment restrictions between both sides have been lifted, and negotiations to free up trade and services are advancing. Taiwan will gear up its key role in global ICT and other industrial supply chains, as well as a bridge to the mainland for foreign multinational companies seeking to diversify their investments in East Asia. How deep are China and Taiwan ready to go in their mutual economic integration? How should EU policy makers factor in these developments their East Asian market access strategies? Although the choice of pragmatism on both sides appears to hold despite respective political constraints, how sustainable is the trend? How can Europe’s manufacturers and services providers raise their profile in the tight-knit supply chains that tie together Taiwan and China? All these questions will be addressed by high-level speakers involved in business, government and research: 

  • Taiwan’s Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs Sheng-Chung LIN – Keynote speaker
  • Sir Thomas Harris, Vice Chairman, Standard Chartered
  • Nicholas Winsor, Chairman, EU Chamber of Commerce in Taipei, President & CEO HSBC Taiwan
  • Razeen Sally, Director of the European Centre for International Political Economy- ECIPE
  • Jonathan Fenby, Journalist, Historian, and Chairman, Trusted Sources
  • Douglas Fuller, Lecturer of International Business and Comparative Management, King’s College
  • Guy de Jonquieres, Senior Fellow, ECIPE, formerly Financial Times
