8. EUROPA-FORUM: Europe and China – From Cooperation to De-Risking

For the eighth time, Hof University of Applied Sciences invites to the EUROPA-FORUM this year. This year, the focus is on economic relations between the EU and China. On October 23, 2023, the 8th EUROPA-FORUM at Hof University of Applied Sciences will shed light on how far the EU and its companies should cooperate with the Middle Kingdom without betraying their own values and losing competitive advantages. How much economic proximity to China does the EU need?

End of the event

Professor Peter Schäfer, initiator of the forum, gave us his assessment of the topicality of the subject:

The European Union has largely done its internal market job: The common market works internally. In foreign trade, however, not the whole world dances to the multilateral and liberal beat of the EU. Alongside the United States, Japan and India, China in particular is becoming an important partner, but also a competitor for the European economy – from an extended workbench to a self-confident economic nation. Our dependence on the Chinese dragon is something we should discuss.”
