Friends of Europe 8th Europe-China Forum

28/11/2018 - 09:30 to 13:30

Friends of Europe for our 8th Europe-China Forum, “EU-China: cooperation, competition and the search for common ground”

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of China’s opening up, this high-level conference will look at Europe-China relations in the context of the myriad opportunities and challenges to come.

As they seek to reach common ground, leaders of both have tough questions to answer on issues including trade, the energy transition and their connectivity projects:
• After 40 years of reform, are China’s markets an open or shut case for European exporters?
• Can there be real synergies between the Belt and Road Initiative and the EU’s connectivity blueprint?
• What can China and Europe do jointly to encourage the development of green tech and clean energy?

This forum, held in partnership with the Chinese Mission to the EU, will bring together an exciting mix of high-level speakers and a few hundred participants, including policymakers, academics, business leaders, civil society representatives and members of the international press from Europe, China and beyond.
