The EU is committed to opening up its trade relations with China. However, the EU wants to ensure that China acts fairly, respects intellectual property rights and respects its obligations as a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). In doing so, he crushed London`s concerns over the Harry Dunn extradition case and continued to harass China at a press briefing with his counterpart Dominic Raab, who was forced to deny to the media that Britain was not “strongly armed” against Huawei. This is being done in the midst of discussions for a trade agreement between the two countries. The preface (other languages), published in November 2020 by Sabine Weyand, Director-General of DG Trade, provides an overview of the successes achieved in 2019 and the ongoing work for the EU`s 36 main preferential trade agreements. The working document attached by the Commission services contains detailed information under the trade and partner agreements. The EU rightly refers to the Phase 1 agreement, because the EU and US financial service providers have the same dysfunctions with regard to access to the Chinese financial market. What is embarrassing is that the concessions obtained between China and the US are reciprocal, which means that they will not extend to the EU or other third parties. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the Bloc was “really serious” with better access to the Chinese market and said: “China needs to convince us that it is worth having an investment deal.” Although the EU currently has a trade deficit with China, the EU exports European exports to other destinations; in fact, the EU`s overall trade balance is positive. Negotiated agreements, meetings, fact sheets, circular reports There are of course disagreements and differences, but there is also caution and realism. The EU remains convinced that it can defend and guarantee its values, while maintaining a principle of engagement and cooperation with China, instead of pursuing the mantra of the neo-Cold War and mcCarthy policy. Factsheets, Vietnamese trade in your city, texts of agreements, stories of exporters After the end of the Cold War, relations with Europe were not as high a priority for China as relations with the United States, Japan and other Asian powers. However, interest in closer relations began to grow as economic contacts increased and interest in a multipolar system increased.

Although China was first subject to an arms embargo after Tiananmen (see section below on the arms embargo), European leaders have eased China`s isolation. China`s growing economy became the center of many European visitors, and in exchange, Chinese businessmen began to travel frequently to Europe. Europe`s interest in China led the EU to become exceptionally active with China in the 1990s with high-level exchanges. . . .
