EU-China leaders meeting: main takeaways

Yesterday, the EU and China held a Leaders’ Meeting via videoconference, attended by the President of the European Council, the President of the Commission, the High Representative and the German Chancellor, to discuss trade and investment, climate change and biodiversity, the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as international affairs and other issues.

With regard to trade and investment, the EU emphasised that more work is urgently needed on the issues of rebalancing market access and on sustainable development in order to achieve an EU-China Comprehensive Investment Agreement, although both sides agreed on progress in the areas of State-owned enterprises rules, forced technology transfer and transparency on subsidies.
