Eurozone Debt Crisis and Its Impact on China-EU Relations
We are pleased to be hosting Ms. Valérie Pécresse—Deputy of the Yvelines since May 16, 2002 and Secretary General Delegate of the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement, Main French political Party)—at 9:30 – 12:30 AM on October 22 at CKGSB’s Beijing Campus. Ms. Pécresse was the Minister for Higher Education and Research from May 18, 2007 to June 2011 and Minister of the Budget from then until May 2012.
The Eurozone is at a key crossroads and will likely emerge from the ongoing crisis looking quite different from the one we currently know. Many companies in the European Union, and even in China, have been suffering from this crisis, and regardless of how the situation unfolds, they will still be affected in the future. Joined by business executives from China and Europe, Ms. Pécresse will deliberate on the evolution of the Eurozone debt crisis and its implications for relations between China and the European Union going forward. This dialogue will shed light on these issues and share best practices for businesses to better navigate the different outcomes that may develop from the crisis.
