Partners and Rivals: The EU and China

China’s role in global affairs is becoming increasingly important. This article offers an analysis of EU-China relations, including political and economic challenges that this relationship faces.

After decades of contact, cooperation and challenges, a new level of relationship was reached in 2003 in the form of a ‘Strategic Partnership’.
