Morning Shot: What geopolitical or economic factors are driving China to prioritise their engagement with Europe?
France, Serbia and Hungary rolled out the red carpet for President Xi Jinping as the Chinese leader made his first state visit to the European continent since 2019.
During his 5-day stay, President Xi hopes to strengthen political and economic ties with all three nations and by extension use the EU as leverage at a time when China's economy is struggling and the US remains reluctant to open up to Chinese companies.
The President is also looking to assuage EU concerns over China's support for Russia, two years into the Ukraine war.
On this episode of Morning Shot, Dr Lim Tai Wei, Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at the NUS East Asian Institute shares his insights.

Japan & South Korea's Trade Tensions
Earlier this month, Japan’s cabinet approved the removal of South Korea from a list of trusted export destinations, and imposed controls on the export of semiconductor materials. In tit-for-tat move, South Korea on Monday struck Japan off a list of nations receiving preferential treatment in trade. There is a historical, political root. Seoul says Tokyo is using trade to retaliate over South Korean court rulings that called for Japanese companies to compensate aging South Korean plaintiffs for forced labour during World War II. For more insights, we’re joined by Dr Lim Tai Wei - Adjunct Research Fellow at the East Asian Institute, at the National University of Singapore. He’s also an Associate Professor at the Singapore University of Social Sciences.
