On October 10 and 11, 2014 over 600 experts from the business, political and academic world came together at the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce to discuss the state of the Sino-European economic relations. We were delighted that Chinese Premier Li Keqiang spoke at the "Hamburg Summit" closing lunch on October 11, 2014 as a guest of honour of the Chinese government. The EU institutions were represented by Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, and Karel De Gucht, EU Trade Commissioner. The German government was represented by Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The sixth “Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe” discussed
- The future of Chinese economic system - Changing the rules of the game
- More Chinese investment in Europe - Challenge and opportunity
- Urbanisation as part of the Chinese reform strategy - How can Western countries contribute?
- The future of EU-China trade relations - Building a new trade and investment order?
- Greening the Chinese economy - Balancing sustainable growth and environmental protection
- How to become famous - Chinese brands arriving at the global stage
The "Hamburg Summit" has today an international reputation as the most relevant Sino-European economic forum, as the participation of the leading Chinese politicians like Wen Jiabao (2006), Ma Kai (2010) and Wan Gang (2012) exemplifies.
