New and Old Players in the Game: China
“When it comes to Chinese influence in the economy, there are many more words than deeds.”
This episode is about a new old player on the Central and Eastern European playground, namely People’s Republic of China. An old player because before the fall of Communism in Europe, many countries of the region had close ties with China, even if sometimes on an on-and-off basis. A new player because with the growing global role of China, the relations between this part of Europe and the Middle Kingdom entered a new chapter.
Therefore, Malwina Talik (research associate at IDM) is welcoming Ivana Karaskova, China Research Fellow and a Project Coordinator at the Association for International Affairs (AMO). Together, they will discuss Chinese interests in the Central Eastern European Region.
What role do they play in China’s “Going Global Strategy”? Can good China-CEE relations pose a potential threat to the EU?
