Coming Up This Autumn: EC's Vision On IP in China

This coming autumn there will be a EU-China summit. EU's trade commissioner Peter Mandelson will be presenting a Communication on trade and investment in China which will analyse the impact of China on the global economy, and how the Union should respond.
Mandelson: "It will focus, in particular, on key challenges such as intellectual property, market access issues and investment opportunities. Europe must get China right – as a threat, an opportunity and prospective partner. I hope our Communication will spark a lively debate, both within the EU and with China."

The European Commission has just launched a public consultation designed to form part of its forthcoming major strategic review of trade and economic relations between the EU and China.
