This article presents an interview with European Union (EU) Commissioner for Trade Peter Mandelson. When asked about the crisis of confidence faced by the EU, he commented that it is a crisis of direction rather than a crisis of identity. He observed that though the EU's project was originally about war and peace, for most people it is about jobs and growth in the new era. He reflects on the EU's trade policy towards China.
