"Geopolitik, Technologie und die Zukunft der deutsch-chinesischen Wirtschafts­beziehungen – Welche Abhängig­keiten sind gefährlich?"

25. May 2023 | 10:30 - 11:30 |Online

We are pleased to contribute to this year's German Security Policy Forum #DFS2023 run by the Bundesakademie für Sicherheitspolitik (BAKS) with a virtual panel discussion.

The escalating hegemonic conflict between the U.S. and China is causing severe dislocations in a technologically interdependent and highly interconnected world. Even if decoupling bloc formation does not occur, the nexus of foreign trade and security has nevertheless radically changed. Debates about new geopolitical risks and diversification strategies already show the explosive power of the primacy of geopolitics for a trading nation like Germany.

This panel explores the question of what exactly the technological and foreign economic policy dimensions of the changing times are in terms of trade and investment with China. What measures can and should the German government and the EU Commission take to reduce strategic dependencies in times of a comprehensive polycrisis? Which (new) partner countries and markets should be prioritized in technological cooperation and what role do security policy aspects play in this?

This event will take place in German.
