This talk provides a candid account of how the Chinese citizenry currently thinks about the European Union and its constituent member states. It draws upon findings from the first iteration of the Chinese Citizens’ Global Perception Survey (CCGPS) conducted in the first quarter of 2023. CCGPS 2023 is a national survey looking at mainland Chinese citizens’ perspectives on China’s current relations with global actors, including, Australia, Canada, EU, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, UK and USA. The talk will focus on discussing the major findings, and theoretical and practical implications, pertaining to Chinese citizens’ (1) general global perception in comparison to the EU; (2) views on China’s global roles; (3) preferences for international tourism, study, work and immigration; and, (4) sources and knowledge of foreign jurisdictions. Suffice it to say, how Chinese citizens perceive the EU and its constituent member states will have profound implications for the future of EU and China interactions.
