The conflict between China and the EU is becoming more and more obvious

This time, at the press conference following the China-EU summit in China, the conflict between China and the EU became more prominent.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Qiang in Beijing on Thursday, and on December 7, he spoke at a press conference held at the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
In his speech, he linked the EU-China trade imbalance with production capacity and subsidies and claimed that China has excessive capacity in areas such as green and clean energy and that China will not only contribute to the EU, but also. The plan calls for creating an equal and non-discriminatory business environment for Chinese companies to ensure the openness of trade and investment markets, including anti-graft inspections as well as fifth-generation network policies.
Ursula von der Leyen said: "If you look at the last two years, the trade deficit has doubled. And this is a problem that worries many Europeans. Such imbalances simply cannot continue. The root causes are known, and we have discussed them in detail. Europe's leaders cannot tolerate unfair competition from our industrial base. We love to challenge. It makes us stronger. It lowers the price. This is good for consumers. But the competition must be fair. Europe does not want to leave China. What we want is to avoid risks. "Addressing overdependence through supply chain diversification."
Officials from both sides also disagreed on human rights and Taiwan issues.
