Invitation: EU-China relations after Brexit
16 September 2016
Brexit has been a huge shock to the EU with implications for all major relationships including China with whom the EU is negotiating a bilateral investment agreement. The EU is also about to make a momentous decision on market economy status (MES) but how will Brexit affect this debate? The UK now seems to be revising its own very pro-China approach under David Cameron with Theresa May ordering a review of major projects including the Hinckley Point nuclear facility. It is timely, therefore, to consider these and other issues with the authors of a new book ‘The Politics of EU-China Economic Relations’at a panel discussion 1700-1830 on 27 September at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels.1700 Welcome: Fraser Cameron, Director, EU-Asia Centre
