Back to the Future
The last chapter begins by examining the emergence of negative perceptions about China among European public opinions in the last years, explaining how these dynamics, along with changes at the top political level both in the European Commission and within member states, would lead to a reassessment of the EU's China policy. This chapter subsequently analyses the last major blow to EU—China relations occurred in July 2008 with the decision to exclude Chinese contractors from the second phase of implementation of Galileo. With this move, the EU would put a temporary halt to satellite navigation cooperation with China and pave the way for a political readjustment of relations between the two sides. This would lend itself, in the remaining part of this chapter, to a final evaluation of the current state of EU—China relations and its future prospects.
