Whither EU-China Trade and Investment Integration: Crisis, Recovery, Future?

September 21 2009
Venue: Conference centre, Rue Montoyer 47
Speakers: Roderick AbbottnFredrik ErixonnPatrick HorgannGuy de JonquièresnJoerg WuttkenYin Zonghua
Time: 14:00

If finance was the first casualty of the credit collapse last autumn, trade was certainly the second. Bilateral trade between China and the EU is no exception. Trade between the two parties has grown to be one of the most important trade flows in the world. It has been subject to political sensitivities and irritations, but it has been hugely beneficial for both sides. However, when bilateral trade and investment between China and Europe now contracts – quite sharply so – it puts the entire discussion in new light. It will take time for trade to return to pre-crisis levels. Already before the crisis started, EU-China trade and investment was about to change in some key respects: what will be the future trends in Sino-European economic integration. How would we want them to develop? Could policy changes speed up trade and investment growth again?

You are cordially invited to an afternoon seminar hosted by ECIPE, EUCCC and APCO
