As you know, EU-China relations have recently faced considerable challenges, characterized by political tensions and an unlevel playing field. The result? A challenging business environment for many European companies in China, with risk factors such as supply chain disruptions, travel restrictions, etc.
What is important to know for you as a European company operating in China, or vice versa?
