Ambassador Chapuis on 30 May participated in the International Finance Forum in Beijing. In his speech, he reminded that “the EU’s response to an increasingly complex global context remains grounded on an open, rules-based multilateralism. Rules-based is fundamental, because multilateralism means shared rules of the game; not power-based competition, rather rules-based competition. We will work closely with like-minded partners on issues of common concern. With China, we will seek to build, as we have done for many years, a fair and rules-based economic relationship. This will remain a priority. For this, we need China to assume responsibility according to its economic weight and engage constructively.”
