ECIPE-ESF Afternoon Seminar – Leading with Services: Trade and Investment Integration between Europe and Taiwan

November 20 2012
Venue: Science14 Atrium, Rue de la Science 14b, 1040, Bruxelles
Speakers: Thomas Harris, , Francis Liang, Patrick Messerlin, Pascal Kerneis
Time: 15:00

Greater openness to trade and investment with Asian growth economies would help to boost Europe’s services sector. A particularly interesting market for European firms is Taiwan. Its services market has grown fast in the past decades, and today Taiwan is increasingly becoming a hub for services firms trading with other countries in the region. This is particularly true for trade with China as the cross-Strait rapprochement has opened up for new opportunities of regional services integration in East Asia. Many other countries are now moving to be part of this integration. What should be Europe’s response?
