As the 17+1 virtual summit approaches, Voice for CHOICE analyzes the role of the Baltic nations and their role in the EU-China dialogue, the role that remains for Russia in influencing the region’s actions on this front, and the strong Transatlantic links that undergird the nation’s security and often its policy stances.
Of course, the region itself is home to diverse populations with varying stances on China issues and their own complex relationships with Beijing. Therefore, a closer look at the shades of gray that color Sino-Baltic relations will surely be addressed. Make the right CHOICE and tune in!
