Seminar on EU-China Investment Relation & FDI Regime

Seminar on EU-China Investment Relation & FDI Regime

China and the European Union have a complex relationship of cooperative partnership, economic competition, and systemic rivalry. The uncertain future of the recently concluded EU – China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI), the EU’s new FDI-Screening-Regulation, the fears of influence and interferences by Chinese sovereign and private investors in European markets, and the geopolitical and geoeconomic considerations affect trade and investment relations.

The Centre for Comparative and Transnational Law at CUHK LAW, DLA Piper and University College London (UCL) Centre for Commercial Law bring together leading practitioners and academics from the Europe, the United Kingdom and China to examine and address critical regulatory developments that affect the future of EU-China trade and investment relations.
