Strategic Insight Events – in association with the European Leadership Network (ELN)


On 30th March, the ELN and Salamanca Group co-hosted a private breakfast meeting on “China’s Slowdown and the Implications for Europe” attended by senior diplomats, politicians and members of both the Western and Chinese business communities to debate the challenges and opportunities of China’s growing role on the world stage.

The meeting was chaired by Baroness Ashton, former EU High Representative and member of the ELN’s Board of Directors. Baroness Ashton started the discussion by drawing on her personal experience of working with Chinese counterparts and highlighted their contribution to one of the most recent collaborative diplomatic accomplishments – namely the EU3+3 Iran deal. She also shared her view on the potential of the relationship with China not only with regard to trade and security, but to broader cooperation on global issues such as climate change and the environment as well as research and innovation. Furthermore, attention was focused on the economic aspects of China’s development and its relationship with Europe.

The ELN is a group of leading foreign ministers, military chiefs and diplomats from across the major European nations. Its aims to provide deep security and business strategic analysis and brings together emerging leaders who may not yet have the networks to know each other well. Lord Triesman is on its Board.

Our next event will be in June 2016 on “Post-Brexit – analysing the result and its implications for the UK”.
