Trump Administration and US-China Relations: The Chinese and European Perspectives
30 January 2017
With the new US president taking office on 20 January 2017, it is necessary to reflect on the future of US-China relations, and their impact on Europe. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump criticized China strongly on trade and regional security. He alsoraised tensions by entertaining a phone conversation with the Taiwanese leader, hence questioning the One-China policy. Whereas his team includes notable hardliners towards China, his actual policy and intentions remain unclear.
From a Europeanperspective, thefuture of US-China relations is of tremendous importance, in terms of global stability, prosperity and responsibility. It will also determine the scope and direction of Europe’s quest for strategic autonomy. In this context, the Brussels Academy for China and European Studies(BACES)and theConfucius Institute at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), together withEgmont -Royal Institute for International Relations, Centre Européen de Recherches Internationales et Stratégiques, EU-Asia Centre in Brussels, are co-sponsoringa workshop and academic debate on Trump Administration and US-China Relations: The Chinese and European Perspectiveson 9 February 2017 at Egmont Palacein Brussels.
