Exclusive: Top German official hushed up report on China's influence - Axios
Business interests have long shaped Germany's relationship with China, to the detriment of human rights concerns and even national security.

Details: The highly sensitive report, completed in 2018, examined the Chinese government's attempts to influence every level of German government, society and business, according to two former U.S. intelligence officials.

  • It cast a particularly harsh light on the intimate ties between German business and the Chinese government.
  • But before it could be widely disseminated within the German government, as had been intended, a high-ranking official intervened.
  • German Chancellor Angela Merkel also saw the report, but few others did, said one official.
