Europe and China
Roland Vogt
Hong Kong University Press

The global financial and European debt crises have altered the structural dynamics between Europe and China. Now, Europe needs China more than vice versa. Chinese competition is making itself felt in Europe in consumer goods and manufacturing, finance, as well as in access to energy and resources. The psychological effect of China's rise on Europe should not be underestimated, as Europe's influence in Asia in general and China in particular is likely to gradually diminish. Yet a too pessimistic outlook for Europe would be premature, as long as Europe's 'soft power' ability to absorb, generate, and debate new ideas remains vibrant.
