EU Trade : Open, Strategic and Assertive

Date : 27 April 2021


For our last class meeting of the 2020-2021 edition, final-year students from both French and German streams had the honour to engage with Mr Walter Van Hattum, First Counsellor and the Head of the Trade Section of the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao. Having presented his insights about the EU's trade policy and China-EU trade relations, Mr Van Hattum addressed our students' pertinent questions, that were noted down for further consideration by Mr Van Hattum and his team. Having arrived only three months ago to Hong Kong, Mr Van Hattum has years of experience in many countries, having been in charge of various missions, including development programmes in particularly in Asia.
