Languages:

The EU and China established formal diplomatic ties in 1975 and today EU-China relations encompass an annual summit,
regular ministerial meetings, and over 60 sectoral dialogues. The EU and China are committed to a comprehensive
strategic partnership, as expressed in the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation. The EU’s new Strategy on
China, adopted in July 2016, has been followed by a March 2019 strategic stocktaking of the EU-China relationship by the
European Commission and the High Representative.

Against the backdrop of China's growing economic power and political influence, the European Commission and the High Representative review European Union-China relations and the related opportunities and challenges.

Today, they are setting out 10 concrete actions for EU Heads of State or Government to discuss and endorse at the European Council of 21 March.
