LAUNCH CLINGENDAEL CHINA CENTRE


03 JUN 2019 - 12:41

 

 

BACK TO OVERVIEW

European governments, businesses and other stakeholders have started a serious, strategic debate on the growing role and influence of China in the world, including in Europe. Key issues include European responses to 5G, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, human rights, knowledge security, and industrial and competition policy. The Dutch Government has recently released their China Strategy arguing for: 

"Working with China where we can, and safeguarding our own interests and values where we must".


By launching the Clingendael China Centre we join our forces in the field of China expertise. Through our analyses, training and public debate we aim to inspire and equip governments, businesses, and civil society on China relations. Meet our experts.

 

Inspiring kick-off event

The Clingendael China Centre kicked off with an inspiring and interactive programme 'Talking China Strategy' on 3 June. During the day we received Dutch diplomats in the EU member states, Permanent Representatives in Brussels, Dutch policymakers at relevant ministries in The Hague, diplomatic representatives of EU member states in The Netherlands, China experts and EU experts. See photostream for an impression.

In the evening we organised a sold out public debate with the Leiden Asia Centre.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
