CHINA HOPES TO STRENGTH THE BEIJING-BRUSSELS RELATIONSHIP

As the Year of Horse has nearly passed, China looks for breakthroughs as newEuropean leaders settle into office in the Year of Sheep.

As Chinese President Xi Jinping visited EU headquarters in Brussels and Prime Minister Li Keqiang paid three visits to the continent, Beijing has already stared to make changes to usher in a breakthrough to build a closer relationship with EU hand in hand with the new European Council President Donald Tusk. And now the prospect of the hopes is up to the hands of the EU, in particular those of Tusk.

Since both China and EU need to advance an economic reform agenda to free up the economic, closer China-EU relations in politics is helpful. Kerry Brown, team leader of the Europe China Research and Advice Network, said that “Tusk needs to give some sense of confidence to his interlocutors in Beijing that he is a man who can create coherence over Chinese policy from the EU and actually deliver the goods. The EU remains China's largest partner in terms of intellectual property, and this is an important asset to have. He needs to leverage this to build the best possible political relationship."
