ZVEI China Theses

China has developed into a self-confident, politically ambitious and economically strong world power. China's success is based on a different system of rights and values than those of Western industrialised countries. Europe's model of success and prosperity, on the other hand, is based on free world trade and access to other markets. Through its entrepreneurial activities, industry contributes to improving the working and living conditions of citizens in many parts of the world as well as human rights and thus makes a significant contribution to prosperity in Germany and Europe. 

The German electro and digital industry is facing up to competition with China on the premise of seizing opportunities - accepting challenges - managing risks

In this publication, ZVEI presents its positions on China, which focus on the proactive strengthening of Germany's own competitiveness, diversification as the key to a secure and reliable future, and a coordinated, self-confident and consistent attitude towards the country.
These must be part of a German China strategy, the elaboration of which the ZVEI strongly supports, but which requires unconditional coordination with the EU and international partners. A unified European policy towards China is needed in order to be able to represent our positions on an eye-level basis.
