Could There Be a Common China Strategy for the Region of Central and Eastern Europe?

Josh Hickman Josh Hickman / Ed. 2. 12. 2019

This briefing paper summarizes the views and comments of participants of the second China Observers in Central and Eastern Europe 1 (CHOICE) International Working Seminar held on April 11-12, 2019, in Prague, Czech Republic.

The event was attended by China experts and foreign policy practitioners2 from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Their aim was to examine and discuss China’s influence and activities in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), share best practices from their Chinarelated projects, debate approaches to studying Chinese influence, and to outline a China strategy for the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. In this last section the participants were asked two specific questions: what do CEE countries want from China? And what can CEE countries offer China? CHOICE hopes that these discussions stimulate further debates on China, its rise and influence throughout the Central and Eastern European region. The seminar was split into three sessions, each addressing one of the specific areas mentioned above.
