30. März 2017: The Age of Chinese Capital: Konferenz bei der Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce
The Age of Chinese Capital: Chinese Investments in Europe
The world is entering a new era in which China is moving from the periphery to the core of the global financial and monetary order. Chinese direct investment in Europe has been hitting record heights in recent years while other forms of financial relations with China, particularly in Luxembourg, have also increased significantly. At the same time, China’s domestic economy is under pressure and the direction of key economic policies remains a key debate. China is indeed in the middle of a transition to a new growth model that entails ambitious agendas for industrial upgrading and financial reform.
The conference will provide an up-to-date assessment of the shifting economic conditions that shape the “New Era of Chinese Capital”. Experts from both the financial and logistics sector will provide insights into existing projects, best practices and novel business opportunities.

25.-28. April 2017: MERICS European China Talent Program 2017
The Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) seeks to encourage young Europeans to deepen their engagement with contemporary China. Each year, the MERICS European China Talent Program gathers a select group of 15 young China experts from across Europe in Berlin to give them an opportunity to discuss topical issues in European China policy with senior decision-makers from politics, business and civil society.
Following two successful workshops in 2015 and 2016, we are looking forward to assembling another inspiring cohort of people eager to deepen their understanding of China and its impact on Europe and become part of a unique Europe-wide network of future China experts. Participants will also get valuable insights into the largest European research institute focusing on contemporary China as well as different China-related career paths.
Date: 25 to 28 April 2017
Place: Mercator Institute for China Studies, Berlin
