In view of the G20 meeting? - EU envisages China free-trade pact
The European Commission adopted on Wednesday (22 June) the main principles of a new EU template for China relations, which include the possibility of a free-trade agreement... But it did not mention the main topic of debate on China - on whether to grant it market economy status. The commission will present its proposal on market status to member states in July, ahead of an EU-China summit, the date of which is yet to be announced. - EUobserver , 22/06/2016
