‘Europe-China Trade and Investment: Converting Challenges into Cooperation?’


Borderlex is media partner of the following event


The Europe-Asia Interlink—a new initiative based in Brussels—is dedicated to open, informed debates, and independent, balanced research on EU economic and political relations with Asian partners such as China, Japan, Korea, India, and ASEAN. Our work aims to overcome institutional and ideational differences and promote mutual understanding, cooperation and convergence on policy content and implementation.

To launch the initiative, we are organising the seminar on EU-China trade and investment. Following discussions on challenges and opportunities, the speakers will identify policy priorities and areas of cooperation necessary to strengthening bilateral relations and multilateralism.
