A new EU-China strategy!

As European Parliament standing rapporteur on China I drafted a report with recommendations for a more united and assertive EU strategy towards China. We need such a strategy given China's growing influence in the world, its assertive foreign policy, disinformation campaigns, and violations of international agreements and human rights. Cross-party we agree that Europe must continue to engage with China, but we must not be blind to the challenges that come with China's rise. We must defend our own interests and values.
