15 September Webinar: After the Summit - EU policy towards China

15 September 2020

On 14 September President Xi will have a virtual summit with EU leaders – Ursula von der Leyen, Charles Michel and Angela Merkel. Join us to discuss the outcome of the meeting and the broader EU-China relations on 15 September, 1300-1400 CET.

This was supposed to be a live summit in Leipzig with all 27 member states but the Covid-19 pandemic made this impossible.

The summit will focus on areas of cooperation such as climate change and review efforts to conclude the long-running negotiations for an investment agreement. EU leaders are also likely to raise more contentious issues relating to Hong Kong and Xinjiang.

On the geopolitical front, Europe is being pushed to take sides in a new cold war between the US and China. How should the EU position itself to best defend its interests? How united are the member states in dealing with China?

The webinar will feature Reinhard Butikofer, Chair of the European Parliament delegation for relations with China, and a strong advocate for a values-based European foreign policy.
