The EU and Hong Kong enjoy a stable trade relationship. Bilateral trade and economic relations are mature and characterized by a very limited incidence of trade irritants. Bilateral trade relations between the EU and Hong Kong are regularly discussed in annual Structured Dialogue meetings that have been held every year since 2007 involving the European Commission and Hong Kong’s government authorities. The yearly Structured Dialogue meetings between the European Commission and Hong Kong’s government authorities allow the EU to exchange information with the Hong Kong authorities on a variety of key issues affecting bilateral trade.

The European Union and China are two of the biggest traders in the world. China is now the EU’s second-biggest trading partner behind the United States and the EU is China’s biggest trading partner. The EU is committed to open trading relations with China. However, the EU wants to ensure that China trades fairly, respects intellectual property rights and meets its obligations as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). In 2013 the EU and China launched negotiations for an Investment Agreement.  The aim is to provide investors on both sides with predictable, long-term access to the EU and Chinese markets and to protect investors and their investments.
