Discussion: China-Germany ties boosted by Angela Merkel’s visit

During German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s three-day visit to China, economic cooperation was highlighted in talks between the two sides. Topics included Chinese investment in Germany, the excess capacity of China’s steel industry, and China’s bid for EU market economy status. How might these issues affect the bilateral relationship? China seems to view Germany as more pragmatic than some other Western nations. Do the two countries have more common interests than differences? What will define the relationship in the future? Join us for a discussion with Mr. Wang Yiwei, Director of the Center for EU Studies at Renmin University; in Berlin, Dr. Angela Stanzel, Policy Fellow for the Asia program and China Program at the European Council on Foreign Relations; and in Brussels, Daniel Gros, Director of the Centre for European Policy Studies.
