Description

China’s increasingly assertive role in international affairs and the international economy continues to raise concerns about its intentions and use of instruments such as foreign direct investment. An important step toward building the trust of foreign countries and businesses in China could be a properly constructed bilateral investment treaty between the EU and China. As part of the effort, the EU should consider establishing a special committee or a decentralized agency tasked with evaluating foreign investments.
