Dear readers,

The MapInfluenCE newsletter is back with yet another special edition! In this edition, we present a deep-dive into the complicated nexus between political and business elites with links to China in the Czech Republic. 

After legislative elections earlier this month, a political reshuffling is impending across both the Czech legislature and the executive. The opposition coalitions critical towards China, SPOLU and Pirates and Mayors, are to form a new government, even if the situation continues to be clouded by the uncertainties over the health of President Miloš Zeman. At the same time, the parties that have in the past supported closer ties with China, the Social Democrats and the Communists, failed to gain seats in the new legislature. 

Considering the new situation, as well as tumultuous developments in Sino-Czech relations in recent years, we have updated our map which originally diagrammed China-Czech business and political links in 2018. 

As the "revolving door" phenomenon has been a salient feature of the Sino-Czech relationship, the new engagement of former political figures will be important to monitor. With the help of our map, a key tool to monitor these relationships is now readily available!
