Objectives

The specific objective of this study is:

To assess how the investment provisions under negotiation could affect economic, social, human right and environmental issues in the EU and China and to make recommendations to maximise the benefits of the agreement and prevent or minimise potential negative impacts.

In addition, the study should highlight elements which might be considered by the Commission during the negotiations in order to in general, maximise the overall benefits of the agreement and prevent or minimise potential negative impacts.
