16 + 1: China’s Push Into Central and Eastern Europe Loses Momentum - Jamestown

"Much of Eastern Europe is now wary towards the PRC to some degree, but this could easily change. China’s recent actions, as well as the renewal of American interest in Eastern Europe, might push the 16+1 countries to gravitate even more toward the West. However, pragmatism (or miscalculation) could send them back into China’s embrace in a way that is similar to Poland’s recent foreign policy shift. Beijing’s attempt to play the role of mediator and peace advocate in Ukraine is received well by some European elites including in Ukraine. Thus, with the help of the remnants of 16+1, and Western European countries like Germany and France, China could greatly expand its economic and political clout in the largest EU candidate country," writes Filip Jirouš.

"The political component of China’s fraying people-to-people ties with the rest of the world, particularly the West, and its increasing physical isolation from the international community, aligns with state promotion of nationalism and economic self-sufficiency. This suggests that China’s current closing of its borders to international travel is likely to outlast the pandemic," writes our China Brief Editor-in-Chief John S. Van Oudenaren:
