In July, the EU-China relations have undergone the annual flurry of summitry. First, on July 6-7 the meeting of the leaders of the members of the 16+1 cooperation mechanism grouping China and 16 Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries was held in Sofia, Bulgaria. This was the seventh 16+1 summit. It was followed by the 20th EU-China Summit hosted by Beijing on July 16.
In the latest issue of the Chinese Media Watch we analyzed relevant articles discussing the two summits in Chinese, Slovak, and Czech media. This enabled us to make conclusions about the different aspects emphasized in the reporting in the respective countries and make tentative comparisons.
