The main objective of the study is to analyze the impact of the Chinese economic offensive on the Balkan countries and the consequences for the Balkan and EU economies. In this context, we will first focus on trade and investment relations between China and the Balkan countries. We will then examine the European Union’s response to the expansion of China’s economic influence in the Balkans. Finally, we will draw some conclusions from China’s and the EU’s relations with the Balkans.
