In mid-October I had the privilege of speaking on two panels at The Rīga Conference 2021 and its side-events.

However, there is not just one EU attitude towards U.S.-China relations. Instead, I see three significantly differing standpoints. The first is a trade-related approach, the second is a security-related posture and the third I labeled a French approach.
