Web-Event "Competitor China"

How should Germany and the EU deal with its competitor China in the future?  We would like to discuss this question with you on 22 September 2020.

China is an extremely important economic partner for the mechanical engineering industry and has turned into a serious global competitor over the last years. At the same time, there is a growing recognition at the economic and political level that the imbalance in market access and Chinese subsidy practices, especially in state-owned companies, which have been tolerated until now, are no longer acceptable.
