EU: Commission chief calls for smart agreements with China

 |  January 8, 2020

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Wednesday, January 8, she would welcome smart and sensible agreements that could be found with China, although it was also important to be clear about areas of disagreement. 

“I think it is very important that, in conflicts with trade, we always keep in mind who will benefit at the very end, and therefore I would be very welcoming if there are sensible and smart agreements we can find with China,” she said, answering questions from an audience in London after giving a speech.
