Panel 17 - The rise of China as a technology superpower – what does this mean for European jobs?

Friday 29 June 2018, 09:00-10:30, room: Netherlands III

China is a world leader in clean energy investments, mobilises huge resources to invest in robotization, artificial intelligence, electric cars and new mobility concepts. The `Made in China 2025` strategy sets down a roadmap from low-wage base mass manufacturing towards knowledge and technology driven economy.  What will this profound transformation mean for the role of European industry in the world and what does it mean for keeping and creating quality jobs in Europe?
