Inaugural Stockholm China Forum
On March 18-20, GMF and its partners, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education (STINT) and the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation held the inaugural Stockholm China Forum in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Forum, which will run biannually, aims to establish a deep and systematic transatlantic dialog about China and the impact of its rise on the transatlantic alliance. This new initiative brings together policymakers, intellectuals, journalists, and businesspeople, drawing both on China experts and on the broader transatlantic policy community.
This first session of the Forum, attended by a number of intellectuals and officials from Europe and the United States, was opened by a dinner speech from H.E. Carl Bildt and covered a range of topics concerning developments in China and the future of EU and US policy.
