Should China be prevented from investing in important industries, like nuclear power and 5G communication? Or would it be better to take a more pragmatic approach, recognising the potential that China has to stimulate economic growth and employment in Europe, as the region struggles to recover from the pandemic?

The podcast is hosted by Duncan Bartlett, Editor of Asian Affairs magazine.
