Concerns over German Chancellor Scholz’s upcoming trip to China…

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s visit to China later this week could trigger fierce backlash at home, analysts told Axios.

Why it matters: Scholz’s trip on Friday with a delegation of business leaders will make him the first EU leader to visit the Asian country since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The visit will also come less than two weeks after Chinese President Xi Jinping secured a historic third term in office.

  • The trip could send a confusing signal about how Europe’s largest economy plans to deal with Beijing, especially as other EU countries increasingly toughen their stances on China, analysts say.

State of play: Scholz’s predecessor, Angela Merkel, had close economic ties with Beijing. China was Germany’s top trading partner over the last six years, with bilateral trade reaching $245 billion last year.

  • But 84% of Germans would like the country to reduce economic ties with China, according to a recent poll by German public service broadcaster ZDF.
  • “Germany made a big bet on China,” says Noah Barkin, a managing editor of Rhodium Group’s China practice. “For many years, this was seen as a source of strength. Now it has become a vulnerability.”
