China and Europe have attracted each other for many years, mainly for economic and trade reasons. During the recent years, however, both sides have changed significantly. China can no longer just work for its economic development, as other countries have been increasingly asking it to be a  responsible stakeholder of the world. Europe or the European Union at the same time is also emerging from an economic power to a comprehensive global player. Now it is time for both sides to develop a more broad partnership, working together to tackle new challenges facing today s world and sharing responsibilities.
