The European view of China as the “workbench of the world” has long been outdated, as China has enormously increased its efforts to become as independent as possible from the rest of the world. European companies in China are increasingly concerned about the impact on their business: Entire supply chains are at risk as soon as the fronts between the USA and China harden, for example.
Especially in growth markets such as software and electronics, Europe must prepare for turbulent times if the two largest economies continue to get serious: High time for a wake-up call and new perspectives to remain capable of acting in the long term.

Jörg Wuttke is BASF’s chief representative in China. He is also President of the EU Chamber of Commerce in China – a post he previously held from 2007 to 2010 and from 2014 to 2017.
