13 February 2024

Stefan Gätzner, Chief Representative Greater China, Federation of German Industries (BDI)
Martin Thümmel, Director for East Asia, Southeast Asia & Pacific, German Federal Foreign Office
Abigaël Vasselier, Director Policy & European Affairs/Head of Programme Foreign Relations, Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS)
Chair: Ian Bond, Deputy Director, Centre for European Reform

Our aim in this webinar was to assess the likely course of relations between Taiwan and the mainland following the Taiwanese elections. What will the new Taiwanese president do? What will Xi Jinping do? And what if anything can the EU and the West do to try to reduce cross-straits tension, or to mitigate its effects on global security and the global economy?
