Débats Visioconférence

This summit was aimed at concluding the negotiation of a “Comprehensive Agreement on Investment”. In the eyes of Chancellor Merkel, this summit should also provide a unique opportunity for EU leaders to “speak with one voice” to China.  The German government recently announced that the EU-China summit has been postponed.

What does this decision actually mean? Is it just a warning sign or the beginning of a “China reckoning” by Europeans?
