Other questions deal with the China-EU Comprehensive Agreement on Investments (CAI) reached in late 2020 but then rejected by the European Parliament in 2021. On what basis should China-EU relations be built?
We conclude with a discussion on how China and the EU can work together to make the Belt and Road compatible with the EU initiative Global Gateway to combat poverty in the world and achieve prosperity in developing countries. What are the differences in China’s approach to developing nations and that of the EU and the U.S.?
