China's Economic Bearing on Europe - Is this just the beginning?

By James Kynge

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - 10:00 to 11:30
Since China’s entry into the WTO 15 years ago, European and Chinese trade and commercial co-operation have increased immensely. What will European-Chinese economic co-operation look like in 10 to 15 years? Will China be stable and continue its economic development? Will Chinese investments into Europe continue in a steady flow? Will Chinese economic competition become strong and will Europe – or some European countries – react? Will Europe find it beneficial actively to support China’s vision and construction of a New Silk Road, the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative? In his lecture, James Kynge will give his assessment of future European and Chinese economic co-operation.
