The videoconference follows the 22nd EU-China Summit that took place on 22 June, and will be an opportunity to discuss and make progress on key aspects of EU-China relations, including climate action, economic and trade issues, as well as the coronavirus response, international and regional issues, and human rights. President von der Leyen, President Michel and Chancellor Merkel will participate in a press conference at the end of the meeting, which will be broadcast live at 16:00 on EbS. Ahead of the leaders’ meeting, the EU and China have signed a bilateral agreement to protect 100 European Geographical Indications (GIs) in China and 100 Chinese GIs in the European Union against usurpation and imitation. This agreement, first concluded in November 2019, should bring reciprocal trade benefits as well as introducing consumers to guaranteed, quality products on both sides. A press release and a factsheet are available online.
