To celebrate the European Chamber’s 20th anniversary, the European Chamber hosted a ‘VIP Webinar Series’ in May 2020 with the world’s leading industry experts, scholars, political consultants and strategists, on a variety of topics including economy, politics, technology, sustainability, EU-China Relation and EU-China-US Triangle.
This webinar was held on 28th May. European Chamber President Joerg Wuttke led a webinar discussion with three champions of multilateralism to get a better grip on the EU-China-US triangle and the directions that their relations may go in.
VIP guests joining the discussion include:
- Charlene Barshefsky, former US trade representative who oversaw the US side of the negotiations with Premier Zhu Rongji for China’s accession to the WTO in 2001;
- Jyrki Katainen, former EU Commission vice president and former prime minister of Finland, who spearheaded the EU’s work on jobs, growth, investment and competitiveness;
- Mikuláš Dzurinda, former prime minister of Slovakia who led his country through its accessions to both the EU and NATO, and who is known for advancing a series of key market reforms.
