Reconciling Markets and Politics in a Globalized World:

Views from China and the West

The world’s three largest economies—the European Union, the United States, and China—are engaged in an increasingly contentious and high-stakes debate over whether to grant market economy status to China at the end of this year. China maintains that being granted this status was a guaranteed term of its entry into the World Trade Organization. Yet, last week, the European Parliament passed a non-binding resolution against granting China market economy status, a move that many observers see as a precursor to a binding vote later this year. This ongoing policy debate has enormous economic, commercial, and political implications for key strategic capitals, as well as for broader diplomatic relations between China and its leading trade partners.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Shi Zhiqin will moderate a discussion about the significance of these recent developments and what they mean for China’s trade ties and broader diplomatic relations with Europe, as well as with other major economies like the United States.
