Financial Associated Press, October 22. According to Agence France-Presse, German Chancellor Scholz announced after the EU summit on the 21st that he will lead a government delegation to visit China next month. This is the first EU leader to visit China since November 2019. Reuters reported that Scholz would lead a delegation of business leaders to China, but he declined to confirm whether he would travel with French President Emmanuel Macron. A spokesman for the German chancellor’s office said the visit would take place in early November. “No one said we have to leave China, we can no longer export there, we can no longer invest there, we can no longer import from there,” the Associated Press said.
