Pair charm offensive with pointed critique

Despite China's good deeds for struggling European countries and businesses, the talks with Li should not avoid criticism of China which is as justified as ever, writes the daily Märkische Allgemeine Zeitung: "The Chinese have even recently become the self-appointed saviours of the euro - a role that lies in their own interest as it allows them to spread risk and strengthen their position of power in Europe. When the Chinese Vice-Premier Li Keqiang now praises the 'highly complementary' German and Chinese economies, it can't hide the fact that there is a much  disorder as far as economic relations go. Foreign investors in the Middle Kingdom often don't have the same rights as Chinese firms. In this country where so much is under strategic control there is a huge lack of transparency. And the failure to protect copyrights remains an enormous problem. The talks with Li must focus on improving these conditions."
