Mind the Gap: Priorities for Transatlantic China Policy

The MSC Distinguished Reflection Group on Transatlantic China Policy has launched its report.

    In a cooperation event with the Aspen Strategic Group and the Mercator Institute for China Studies, the Munich Security Conference has launched the report “Mind the Gap: Priorities for Transatlantic China Policy” of the Distinguished Reflection Group on Transatlantic China Policy.

    Prof. Dr. Amrita Narlikar, as a member of this group of noted senior specialists, contributed with her expertise on multilateralism, international political economy, and geopolitical developments especially involving the Global South to the timely discussion and the resulting report about the relation between Europe, North America, and China.

    As the report states: “Faced with the reality of China’s policies today, the democracies of Europe and North America must join forces to defend and advance their interests and their values. If they do so, in cooperation with like-minded partners around the world, we firmly believe they will be able to hold their own in any competition with China”.

    The report further states: "Increasing coordination between the United States, Canada and Europe as well as coordination within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and with the Global South should be a key component in pursuing transatlantic priorities."
