What China Has to Offer Europe

18 Nov 2011

Leo Goodstadt, adjunct professor in Trinity College Dublin's School of Business, gave a fascinating presentation to members of the IIEA's China Group today on the topic of What China Has to Offer Europe. Drawing on his extensive Hong Kong banking experience and financial research, Prof. Goodstadt analysed China’s current drive to expand its international financial partnerships and to globalise its currency, the RMB.


Before his address, we asked him to give us a quick summary of what China has to offer Europe. He emphasised that although there are good reasons for China to support and invest in Europe, the Chinese must take a very tough-minded view on developments in the EU. He noted that although there are a lot of undervalued assets in Europe at the moment, the EU must compete with other demands on China's finances including a hugely ambitious programme of domestic investment.

You can listen to a podcast of Prof. Goodstadt's presentation and download a copy of his slides on the event webpage here. The video is currently being edited and will be uploaded in the coming days.
