During the last decade, there was a dramatic growth in cooperation between China and the EU. Although the European Union faced challenges of enlargement and the world financial crisis, it remained China's most important trading partner, the largest supplier of technology and equipment and one of the top foreign direct investors and service providers. Beside a long history of mutual cooperation and strong ties, there were always irritations and problems. The main assumption is that both economies are at the crossroads and that it is time for change. According to Europe's 2020 growth agenda and China's 12th Five Year Plan, opportunities for cooperation in areas of the green economy, urbanization, environmental protection, scientific innovation and technology are enormous. There is also a comparative analysis of trade in goods, services and foreign direct investments in this book. Anyone interested to find all aspects of the China-EU trade,such as problems, barriers and possible solutions at one place, will find it enlightening.
