The purpose of the webinars is to explore the extent to which EU–China relations have been evolving and may evolve in an era of connectivity. In particular, the webinars will focus on understanding the economic, political and strategic rationales that underpin connectivity agendas both in China and the EU and will explore pathways for promoting mutual interests.
