The EU and China will hold the 15th EU-China High Level Summit in Brussels in September. It will almost certainly be the last major event between the EU and China in Europe attended by Premier Wen Jiabao. At this event, key EU officials and leading experts will look at the current status of this critical relationship and will assess how it has developed over the last decade, what the historic legacy of Wen Jiabao is likely to be, and what the current core issues are as both Europe and China undergo major challenges – economic for the former and leadership transition for the latter.

LIVE STREAM: This event will be live streamed here.

The event is part of the Europe China Research and Advice Network (ECRAN) project, which is funded by the European Union.

A summary of the event will be made available.
