In an article published in South China Morning Post, journalist Victoria Ruan attempts to explore the impact of SY.RIZ.A win on China’s investments in Greece. In so doing, she uses quotes made by Yao Ling, deputy director of the European research department of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation. As the Chinese analyst suggests: ‘Of course we would be unlikely increase the exposure to Greek debt further given the current situation, but the political reshuffle wouldn’t take a serious toll on our existing holdings. Greece also carries strategic significance to China as it’s a point that connects on-road and sea-borne trade routes’.
