Towards post-pandemic green multilateralism?

How could we achieve a trilateral relationship between China, the EU and the US and consolidate it with climate goals?

Date: December 10, 2020, 9:30 am Topic: Global Economics & Governance

We are pleased to discuss with Dr Huiyao Wang – President of the Center for China and Globalization and Counselor for the State Council of the People’s Republic of China about his recent proposals for a post-pandemic green multilateralism. At the same time, the EU wants to green its economy and impose border carbon adjustment – a strategy that it may share with a new US administration.

Would there be scope for a multilateral approach in which China, the EU, and the US join forces in a new trilateral mechanism between China, the EU and the US? What role for COP26, the UN and the World Trade Organization and others?

This event is open only to Bruegel’s Members and select experts.

Carbon border adjustment in the United States: not easy, but not impossible either

President Biden has promised to implement a levy on carbon-intensive imports, albeit without a federal domestic carbon price. The measure faces a number of difficulties, but could feasibly be implemented. The route chosen by the US will have important implications for the EU's own plans.

Strategic autonomy or strategic alliance?

It is hard to imagine how either the EU or the US can do better on the big issues if they pursue their interests separately.

A rushed deal or a rush to judgement?

The Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) is supposed to improve market access for European companies operating in China and to ensure a level playing field, as well as reciprocity. Does it fulfil such expectations?

Memo to the European Commissioner for Financial Services Policy

The Commissioner for Financial Services Policy should define and promote a vision for a sustainable global financial regulatory and supervisory order, based on the lessons from the previous major international financial crisis in 2007-09 and its aftermath. As a member of President Ursula von der Leyen’s “geopolitical Commission,” the Commissioner should lead in setting the international agenda and build global credibility by driving the corresponding “domestic” (ie EU) reforms at home. This memo focuses on the international aspects.

An EU - China investment deal: a second look

For the moment, it does not look like we have the basis for greater and deeper economic relations with China. However, dismissing China and the opportunities that it creates for global cooperation would also be a mistake.
