EU - China

The EU-China relationship centres around the four main pillars of the EU-China Strategic Partnership that the two countries agreed upon in 2013: peace and security; prosperity; sustainable development; and people-to-people exchanges.

The EU and China are two of the biggest traders in the world, with China being the EU's second trading partner. But in recent years the balance of challenges and opportunities in the bilateral relationship has shifted on issues such as market access obstacles and unfair trade practices. Also Parliament strongly condemns the Chinese government-led system of forced labour – in particular the exploitation of Uyghur, ethnic Kazakh and Kyrgyz, and other Muslim minority groups – in factories within and outside internment camps in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. It also denounces the continued transfer of forced labourers to other Chinese administrative divisions, and the fact that well-known European brands and companies have been benefiting from forced Chinese labour.
