中方联席院长刘飞教授,欧方执行院长Clemens Richter博士

Dear readers,

We've only just celebrated the start of 2017–but in China, it is time to light your firecrackers again to celebrate another New Year: Chinese New Year, the Spring Festival, the most important holiday for Chinese. In 2017, the new Chinese Zodiac year begins on 28 January. Happy New Year of the Rooster!

What will this New Year bring? How will China and the EU deal with the question of China's market economy status? What developments in International Trade Law are important? How will China and the EU adjust key foreign policy priorities? We will debate these questions and many more at the China-EU School of Law in lectures, at events, and in publications. With a mixture of reflection and dialogue on legal issues, we wish to positively shape the New Year. We also hope for your continued support and collaboration in achieving this.

And while we get ready for the Year of the Rooster, we can practice our Mandarin: Xin Chun Kuai Le! (This is a traditional Chinese New Year greeting meaning: Happy New Year!)

Prof. Liu Fei, Chinese Co-Dean, and Dr Clemens Richter, Executive European Co-Dean
