Global China Conversations #31 Chinese Industrial Subsidies: Impacts on EU-China Trade?

29. Apr 2024 @ 11:00 - 12:00

China makes extensive use of subsidies to promote the development of selected industries such as the green technology sectors of electric vehicles, wind turbines and rail vehicles. According to various studies, industrial subsidies in China are three to four times or up to nine times higher than in the major EU and OECD countries. Is the Chinese government deliberately strengthening its export offensive strategy with these massive subsidies? How could such extensive industrial subsidies from China affect EU-China trade in particular? Are European companies facing increasing market pressure as a result of such subsidies? How should the EU react to these challenges?


The event consists of different impulse lectures followed by a discussion.

The Global China Conversation #31 will be held in German.
