Germany: European and global trading leader

Mary Sumner House

London SW1P 3RB

This will be the first in our 2018 series of joint events with Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation and Global Policy Institute

It is sometimes claimed that the UK has to choose between European and global trading links. Germany has managed to be both the most successful large economy in Europe and at the same time  a leading exporter to global markets. Our panellists will consider how Germany has managed to combine these two supposedly incompatible goals. In particular the trading models of Germany and China, one of German’s major markets, will be contrasted and compared.
