Trade tensions hindering global growth, G20 warns – Chinese president in Africa to boost economic ties
Though the European Union is calling for a unified approach to trade with China, the individual member states are courting the country for investment. That has created quite the tightrope act, DW's Frank Sieren writes.
Rome and Beijing are expected to ink billions worth of deals, as well as plans for cultural exchanges. Xi sought to assure European leaders that there was "no fundamental conflict of interest" between them.
The leaders of China, Germany, France and the EU have held "unprecedented" talks on building a new global governance. The challenge for Europe is how to balance ties in the face of Beijing's growing global influence.
China is trying to divide the European Union on the issue of trade. It must not be allowed to succeed, says DW's Christoph Hasselbach. By presenting a united front, the bloc can win far more concessions from Beijing.
