Dear Madams and Sirs,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information from the EU delegation to China:
1) a list of meetings of staff of the EU delegation to China and representatives of individual companies (including law firms) and/or industry federations such as the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, in which the EU-China investment agreement was discussed (since 1 January 2019);
2) minutes and other reports of these meetings;
3) all correspondence (including emails, letters, phone calls) between staff of the EU delegation to China and representatives of companies, business associations and law firms, in which the EU-China investment agreement was discussed (since 1 January 2019).
I would appreciate if you could take the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour into account when considering section 1 of this request.
I would be very grateful if you would release documents when they are retrieved, rather than waiting until the full reply is ready.
I look forward to hearing from you.
on behalf of Corporate Europe Observatory
Rue d’Edimbourg 26
