Macron China visit yields deals worth €13.5bn - China Import Expo underway in Shanghai - Economic advisers trim German growth forecast - India plastic ban faces unexpected resistance
The EU will only be able to face China if it acts decisively and manages to present itself as a great power in geostrategic terms, says DW’s Frank Sieren.
French President Macron and Chinese leader Xi have announced fresh trade contracts worth $15 billion amid the ongoing trade war between the US and China. Macron and Xi also agreed to double down on climate change.
