Paul Irwin Crookes speaks on EU-China economic relations at a policy

Paul Irwin Crookes speaks on EU-China economic relations at a policy roundtable in Zurich organised by Chatham House and Credit Suisse Research Institute

Paul Irwin Crookes presented the latest research thinking on EU-China trade relations at a research seminar jointly organised by The Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) and Credit Suisse Research Institute and held at the Zunfthaus zur Meisen guild house in Zurich. The event brought together academics and policy specialists from Europe and China to explore key themes in China’s international economic relations. Using the characteristics of the Swiss-China FTA as a starting point for analysis, Paul pointed to a number of operational differences and persistent policy challenges that exist in China’s economic relations with the EU versus the example of Switzerland that help to explain ongoing tensions in bilateral trade and investment negotiations.
