As the first European nation having established diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China in 1964, France has always had a special link with Beijing. With China now presenting itself as the next superpower, how does France position itself? Does it advocate a stand-alone approach or a pan-European strategy? As the US-China relationship becomes more confrontational, where does Emmanuel Macron’s France stand on a transatlantic dialogue vis a vis China?
Philippe Le Corre, Senior Fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government and Affiliate with the Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship at the Harvard Kennedy School, specializes in China’s global rise, Chinese foreign direct investments, France, and China-Europe relations.
