Abstract
Economic relations between the European Union and the People's Republic of China, manifesting themselves, inter alia, in the transfer of technologies, are beneficial for both parties. From the point of view of China, import of technologically advanced goods from Europe and a subsequent opening to investment by European enterprises, involving technology transfers, have been one of the major factors in the development and modernisation of the economy. For the European Union access to the huge Chinese market has offered new, attractive opportunities in terms of business interests and exploitation of its competitive advantages in the high technologies sector.
