Invitation- China’s 19th Party Congress

17 October 2017

This week sees the start of the 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It promises to be a momentous event confirming China’s leadership for the next five years and setting out policy directions. It is widely expected that Xi Jinping’s leadership will be strengthened but who will join him in the ruling Politburo? And in which direction will he steer the country, soon to be the largest economy in the world? Will China become a more liberal or authoritarian society? How will China respond to the mounting security challenges in its neighbourhood, most notably the nuclear ambitions of the DPRK?

Event report --- Trilateral Relationship in an uncertain world

11 October 2017

On 28 September 2017 the EU-Asia Centre, the Brussels Academy for China and European Studies (BACES) and the Confucius Institute at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), together with Egmont - Royal Institute for International Relations, Centre Européen de Recherches Internationales et Stratégiques, organized a conference on the future of EU-China-US relations – “Trilateral Relationship in an uncertain world”.

Opening the event, Fraser Cameron, Director of the EU-Asia Centre, said that we were living in very unpredictable times. Who would have thought a year ago that the EU and China would have more in common on climate change and free trade than the US?  Now that Donald Trump had been in office nine months it was timely to to assess what were the prospects for the EU, US and China working together to address some of the major global challenges.

Event Invitation, 11th October --- EU Policy towards Asia

4 October 2017

The EU is steadily increasing its ties to Asia, home of four strategic partners (China, India, Japan and Korea).  More than half of the EU’s trade is with Asia and it is the biggest investment partner in most Asian countries. An FTA with Japan is nearing completion and follows a similar agreement with Korea. Negotiations with China for an investment treaty are on-going while it is hoped that the EU-India summit on 6 October will deepen cooperation with the largest democracy in the world.  The EU is also seeking to increase its cooperation with Asian partners on a range of global issues from trade and climate change to migration and terrorism.

Invitation Sep. 28th --- How Green is China?

21 September 2017

The EU-Asia Centre invites you to a panel discussion on the state of the environment in China. Beijing is now a strong defender of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and a ‘Green China’ is now propagated by the government as a top priority. China has made remarkable progress in introducing Green technology and is working with the EU on several environmental projects. At the same time there are huge challenges in cleaning up the environment, not least due to years of neglect, the emphasis on economic growth and the heavy dependence on coal.

Invitation on Sep. 28th---EU-China-US Trilateral Relationship in an Uncertain World

13 September 2017

Given the importance of the EU, the United States and China for the global system what are the prospects for trilateral cooperation in different policy areas? It might have seemed strange to consider such a question just a few years ago when the transatlantic relationship was unquestionably closer than either EU-China or US-China relations. But the swift rise of China as a global actor and especially the advent of Donald Trump as President of the US have brought about some fundamental changes.
