The future of German-Chinese economic relations
China’s accession to the World Trade Organization is now 20 years ago. In these two decades, the Chinese economy has played a decisive role in and for the global economy, but contrary to many hopes it has not developed in the direction of an open market economy. China’s importance for Germany as an export nation is enormous, but dynamic economic relations cannot hide political conflict areas that have increased between Beijing and Europe’s capitals in recent years. A reassessment of German-Chinese economic relations has already started because China is a partner, competitor and strategic rival for the Federal Republic. Which political conclusions result from this fact should be discussed with renowned scientists.
