CAI in a coma – EU drafts new Industrial Strategy

EU Trade Commissioner Dombrovskis makes it clear: The CAI investment agreement between the EU and China is not dead – but there are significant hurdles. According to EU parliamentarians, it could take years to dismantle them. However, while the CAI is stuck, there is a lot of work going on in other areas. Brussels wants to better protect European companies from unfair competition from state-subsidized companies and make their own supply chains more independent. That, too, is aimed at China. 

A clarification was apparently so important to EU Trade Commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis that he emphasized it separately at the regular press conference after the meeting of the EU Commissioners: The EU Commission's approach towards the EU-China Investment Agreement (CAIhad not changed – the agreement was still important for the relationship between Brussels and Beijing. It was necessary to correct imbalances in market access. But ratification cannot be divorced from the "wider dynamics" between the two economic blocs, Dombrovskis said.
