Parliamentary questions
12 July 2018
E-002957/2018
Answer given by Ms Malmström on behalf of the Commission

The EU-China negotiations for a Comprehensive Agreement on Investment have significantly progressed in the course of the last five years, but important issues still need to be resolved. Policy divergences persist on core investment provisions, such as national treatment and fair and equitable treatment.

Although China engages in dispute resolution and sustainable development, further progress on these topics will need to be made. The Commission has been calling on its counterpart to be more ambitious and flexible in the negotiations.

At the 7th High Level Economic and Trade Dialogue (25 June 2018) both sides agreed to exchange market access offers at the upcoming Summit to give political impetus towards an ambitious EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment, both in terms of investment liberalisation and protection.
