China has been a life long interest for Brendan and he is a keen student of its culture and history.  

In 1983, Brendan Halligan was a member of the European Parliament’s delegation to the People’s National Assembly which visited China at the invitation of the Chinese government.

Brendan Halligan set up the China Project Group in the Institute of International and European Affairs and is currently planning the establishment of an Ireland China Institute, which will operate within the IIEA structure.

China is currently at the forefront of the development and implementation of Renewable Energy – an area of keen interest to Brendan Halligan.

He visited Beijing in June 2014 to meet various official and academic bodies.
