After a cooling down of political relations between the EU and China, will the two powers be able to develop towards mutual openness? Has the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) gotten lost in translation, or will both parties finally reach a transparent framework in which the agreement can be ratified?
Even though some challenges in the relationship need to be addressed, the EU and China have intensified their cooperation in the fields of culture, tourism and education through sector-focused policy dialogues.
