时间：2019年3月15日（周五）下午15：30 - 17：00
摘要：Europe and China look back to decades of very successful and constructive economic cooperation. In recent years, however, these relations have been put to the test. Disruptive forces arise first of all from new (economic) nationalisms and strong forces trying to re-organize the global economy. These new developments find their strongest manifestation in aggressive trade policies by the Trump administration. The presentation will highlight European perspectives on the latter and discuss their impact on Sino-European relations. On another side bilateral relations can be expected to change in the context of the unfolding Belt & Road Initiative. While Chinese and European interests might not be 100% identical, great potential exists which will be discussed. As a third major shaping force ofcontemporary Sino-European relations, the different societal and political perspectives on Artificial Intelligence will be discussed. What kind of cooperation is possible is this field？
