EU-China Summit: Partnership in Technology is Crucial

The European Union and China held their 22nd bilateral Summit on 22 June 2020.

In a significant passage President von der Leyen said: “The COVID-pandemic and a number of major bilateral and multilateral challenges show clearly the EU - China partnership is crucial, be it in terms of trade, climate, technology, and the defence of multilateralism. But for our relations to develop further, they must become more rules-based and reciprocal, in order to achieve a real level playing-field.”
