“Hamburg Summit: China Meets Europe" 2014

On October 10 and 11, 2014 over 600 experts from the business, political and academic world came together at the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce to discuss the state of the Sino-European economic relations. We were delighted that Chinese Premier Li Keqiang spoke at the "Hamburg Summit" closing lunch on October 11, 2014 as a guest of honour of the Chinese government. The EU institutions were represented by Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament, and Karel De Gucht, EU Trade Commissioner. The German government was represented by Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany.

  • The future of EU-China trade relations - Building a new trade and investment order?

The “Hamburg Summit” has today an international reputation as the most relevant Sino-European economic forum, as the participation of the leading Chinese politicians like Wen Jiabao (2006), Ma Kai (2010) and Wan Gang (2012) exemplifies.

The “Hamburg Summit” was initiated by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce in 2004 as a platform for an open dialogue between Europe and China with the goal to improve the economic relations and the understanding of each other.
