The main focus of this luncheon is to discuss with Ms. König the EU investment in China and HK and vice-versa as well as the bilateral trade.
As China becomes the EU’s largest source of imports, the EU’s trade deficit with China has risen dramatically. Key concerns of the EU in itstrade relations with China cover the facilitation and protection of mutual investments, enhancing bilateral investment, and deeper cooperation on investment.
Trade between China and the EU continue to increase, but investment flows between the two regions remain limited in comparison. There exists in China great untapped potential; however, enthusiasm of European investors has been dampened by the persistence of barriers and an uncertain business environment.
With China’s continued growth in the global economy, Hong Kong will undoubtedly be a point of great interest. Ms. König will also assess the role Hong Kong will play in the trade relationship between China and the EU.
