Examining the rationale behind Chinese investments in Europe
Europe and China have been long-time trading partners. From access to new technologies, high-tech assets and knowledge to broader commercial access into the European market, China’s interests in Europe are many. Today, China is the EU’s largest source of imports. What is more, China considers Europe fertile ground for new infrastructure investments. The EU-funded REDEFINE project will answer the following questions: What is the rationale behind Chinese investments in Europe, and what are the geopolitical dynamics surrounding these financing streams? How are the projects structured and how do they interface with national and local development policy? Using an assemblage methodology, the project will identify project-by-project effects. Case studies will be conducted in the UK, Germany, Greece and Hungary.
