The European Union and China are major global powers, and the potential exists for them to extend their economic ties in ways that benefit both themselves and the world. With the United States backing off on globalization and climate change, China and the EU could collaborate on these matters and more. The authors – respected economists, academics and researchers – provide a granular look at the possibilities emanating from a EU–China economic alliance. Though the report is a bit repetitive in spots, getAbstract suggests it to economists, policy experts, and China watchers for the wealth of detail it offers on the EU–China relationship.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why China and the European Union would benefit from closer economic ties, and
- What steps they could take to move toward an economic alliance.
