Co-hosted by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and MERICS, it is with much pleasure we are gathering for the European China Policy Track 1.5 Workshop 2023 in Madrid on 19 - 20 September 2023.
Now in its eleventh edition, the European China Policy Track 1.5 Workshop has travelled through various European capitals. The format gathers senior officials from the foreign ministries of select EU member states (France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the EU) as well as leading European China experts from the think tank community.
The workshop offers a venue for discussing and recalibrating European China policy at a time of major shifts in European and global politics. In 2023, the European China Policy Track 1.5 Workshop takes place biannually and moves with the presidency of the Council of the EU. This enables us to connect our discussions closely with the most relevant and pressing China policy debates taking place in EU capitals.
The conference takes place on a strictly confidential basis.
