Question for written answer  E-003952/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Roman Haider (ID)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Protecting markets in Europe

In recent years, China’s economy has caught up considerably with those in the West and overtaken those of a number of countries, thanks in part to government support. At the same time, we are witnessing industrial espionage and stolen patents again and again. Moreover, despite cooperation, it is a constant struggle for foreign companies to gain a foothold in the People’s Republic, whereas China’s investments in markets in Europe are gaining ground, especially in the planning of the so-called New Silk Road(1).

1. How long does the Commission intend to continue to tolerate this state of affairs, which is detrimental to the Union, or are efforts being made to make takeovers by Chinese companies on the internal market more difficult?

2. What concrete measures are currently being taken to protect Europe’s markets from the outside world and what measures are planned for the future?
