Aside from the devastating human toll, the ongoing war in Ukraine has thoroughly shaken up the world economy. What has been or will be the impact on the European and Chinese business environment, and China’s geopolitical position in the world?
China is currently focusing on innovation to reach its ambitious economic growth target, but its efforts might be hindered by the US-China strategic rivalry. This might in turn lead to a shift in EU-China relations. What will this then mean for European business?
To clarify this complex issue from a business-related and geopolitical perspective, the BCECC is glad to be organizing its webinar “Geopolitics, business & the war in Ukraine: Power shifts & economic turmoil?” on April 28, 2022 at 11:00 CET (17:00 CST).
