Diplomatic exchange between Chinese and European leaders has become increasingly frequent and robust in recent years. Last November, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with then-president of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and then-president of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy. In 2014, both Xi and Premier Li Keqiang again made trips to Europe. While such state visits are a vital part of healthy diplomatic relations, tourism and exchanges between ordinary citizens through cultural centers are also important to strengthening ties.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Zhang Lihua will host a panel of leading Chinese scholars to assess how the cultural values intrinsic to people-to-people interactions foster cooperation between China and its largest collective trading partner, and how cultural diplomacy can further enhance Sino-EU relations. The discussion will be in English and Chinese with consecutive interpretation provided.

Zhang Lihua is a resident scholar at the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy  where she examines how China’s core values affect Chinese foreign policy.  Zhang is also director of the European Studies Center at Tsinghua University’s Institute of International Studies. Her other research interests include political theory, European politics, and contemporary Chinese politics and diplomacy.
