MERICS EU-China Opinion Pool: EU-China relations after the Party Congress

The 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (hereinafter: the Party Congress) signaled a continuation of Xi Jinping’s leadership, emboldening commitment to party policies now in full compliance with Xi Jinping thought. Having had some time to pore over the finer details of Xi’s work report, selected experts take a look at its implications for EU-China relations.

In this round of MERICS’ EU-China opinion pool, compiled by MERICS Analyst Grzegorz Stec, we have asked a number of experts: “What does the outcome of the Party Congress mean for the EU and EU-China relations?” Among the experts are China Horizon researchers Kjeld Erik Brødsgaard (CBS), Alicia García-Herrero (Bruegel), and Marcin Jacoby (SWPS University).
