Chinese economic influence as a potential security threat: The Dutch response
For the Netherlands, one of China's largest economic partners in the EU,
the main vulnerability stemming from economic interaction with China is
that it can lead to strategic dependencies. This Hybrid CoE Working
Paper analyzes China's economic influence as a potential threat to
national security and the Dutch government's response. The main
conclusion is that the degree to which vulnerabilities that stem from
Chinese economic influence are acceptable depends on the potential
damage and on the possible gains that the cooperation with China can
bring for Dutch economic competitiveness.
