The European Union needs to work hand in hand with China as a matter of necessity given the economic havoc wreaked by the coronavirus pandemic, said a top EU official in charge of Tuesdays trade talks with Beijing.
Chaired by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He, the meeting comes as Brussels is hoping to clinch a landmark investment deal with China this year, though progress has been slow.
By pulling together, we can recover more quickly economically, and make progress on areas of mutual interest such as trade and investment relations, European Commission Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis told Politico ahead of the talks.
We have certain demands on our side, such as the need for our companies to get the same treatment in China as Chinese companies [get] here, Dombrovskis, a former Latvian prime minister, said. Its an important relationship [between the EU and China], but not an easy one. [ ]
The EU has resisted calls for a rethink of the investment talks after Beijing imposed a national security law on Hong Kong, with most of its proposed punitive measures targeted against the city rather than the central government that introduced the legislation.

Now theres an idea worth flushing down the toilet.
Like the French government worked hand in hand with the Germans starting in 1940?
Belgium is one of the hardest hit European countries. Look at the numbers in DoughtyOnes daily thread.
Will they be sending supplies to shore up the failing Chinese dam that’s going to flood the country? ;)
A move they will regret.
Meaning, the EU plans to team up with Chyna to make war (economic or otherwise) on the United States of America.
The ChiComs only want to help you.
DoughtyOne’s daily collection of lies, damned lies, and statistics? Full of data irretrievably conflated with false positives and false death determinations?
Boy am I glad Trump is too smart for this.
De industrialization of the west means China wins in the end, without firing a shot. Looks like “the dragon” has compromised all Western politicians with bribery.
When you get your hand back check to see if you still have your watch , rings etc and all your fingers ,LOL
All western European countries run a trade deficit with the folks that sent then the pandemic except Germany from which China steals their industrial secrets. The EU is like the mentally challenged child in the alliance family that unfortunately we have been assigned to protect the last 70 years. Time to unload this child.
The USA needs to work hand in hand with Poland and Hungary to get all of its military assets out of Western Europe. And then to begin to treat the EU as a likely enemy.
The EU is entirely corrupt. It is a govt without direct responsibility to any citizens. As such its likelihood of engaging in mass murder approaches 100%. Any govt force that is not directly responsible to the people will engage in a lot of atrocities. The FBI/Marshals/ATF vs your local police dept is a good example. There is some modicum of control over the local police. There is none over the Federal types. Hence Waco, Ruby Ridge and many more.
Pharoh’s heart is hardening. The globalists do not want to punish the guilty chicom businesses , they want to keep suppressing local businesses from benefiting from this. Hence the lockdown mandates while they offer chicom corporations...
