European Guanxi Youth Conference

The European Guanxi Youth Conference
on EU-China Relations (EGYC)

The EGYC is a unique opportunity to gather the brightest minds in Europe for in-depth discussions on the People’s Republic of China’s role in the world and its impact on the EU’s foreign policy.

With this annual Conference, we aim to facilitate the EU’s knowledge base on China from a youth perspective and to connect with other young Europeans active in the field of EU-China relations.
