Glasshouse Forum and the European Council on Foreign Relations
are pleased to invite you to a film screening and seminar on
THE IMPACT OF THE GLOBAL CRISIS ON EU-CHINA RELATIONS
Stockholm, 12th May 2009, at 14.00-16.30
Since the beginning of the global crisis, the world has been wondering about China’s response. Would there be negative shockwaves from a Chinese economy crippled by its over-reliance on exports? Or would the global economy be rescued by the unleashing of China’s domestic demand, with the Chinese spending potential largely intact thanks to huge financial reserves and the budgetary surplus? And would China act to end the global credit crunch by contributing some of its vast financial holdings and providing much-needed capital for international public lending?
14.00: Screening of the film Is There a China Model? – a video documentation from a Glasshouse Forum China-West Intellectual Summit in Paris in February 2009. Introductory remarks by Daniel Sachs, CEO of Proventus, Founding Partner of Glasshouse Forum, and ECFR Member
15.00: Panel discussion with:
Timothy Garton Ash, Professor of European studies, Oxford, and ECFR Member
Shaoguang Wang, Professor of Political Science at the Chinese University of Hong Kong

Moderated by Mark Leonard, Executive Director of ECFR
