Germany is stalling the Chinese takeover of yet another tech firm. Last time it was a top industrial robotics manufacturer. This time, a supplier to the semi-conductor sector, Aixtron.
Heightened security concerns on the continent have been just one reason for a sharp drop in China's investment activities across Europe. A fresh study shows, though, that German firms remain coveted takeover targets.
Both the US and China say they've made "tremendous" progress when it comes to resolving their trade disagreements. DW spoke to Chinese analyst He Jiangbing about the trade tensions and impact on the Chinese economy.
Chinese telecom giant Huawei would like to help build up Germany's 5G mobile network, but concerns abound about the firm's closeness to Beijing and the potential for spying. Germany is not alone in its fears.
We can learn an important lesson from the Huawei affair: The world urgently needs an independent international telecommunications authority to foster transparency in the industry, says DW’s Frank Sieren.
