China has been implementing a “state-driven investment strategy” to enable a strong export-driven economy since the 1980s. The European Court of Auditors (ECA) looked at the EU’s response to this strategy and identified several challenges and implementations of China’s economic rise for the EU. We would be delighted to discuss ECA’s findings with you and with our experts at our online event:
