The Relationship Between China and the EU. What Is Going On Between the Two?

Earlier this week the CNN Business Blog commented on the relationship between China and the EU in “Is Love in the Air for the EU and China?”.

Here is what I think about it…

It may not be love between the EU and China but necessity. The Europeans badly need money to prop up the weak member States. There is simply not sufficient supply (or willingness) to make the necessary transfers. In contrast, China has accumulated lots of surplus, some of which it may be willing to invest abroad in order to keep the overall economic machine (and therefore their own economy) alive. So if the Europeans can find a match between their needs and China’s capabilities, then this might be a marriage made in heaven (for the time being at least)!
