Since the financial crisis in 2008, the EU has shifted its energy policies (from environmental stewardship to affordability and availability) and created a void, in terms of investments, among its member states which gave the opportunity for Chinese companies to invest in EU’s energy sector. However, due to energy sector strategic nature, China’s energy investments in the EU are perceived more negatively than investments in other sectors, with implications for both politic and economic level. When speaking about the Czech Republic and Poland, both countries are equally positioned in the world system and interact with China using almost the same methods of cooperation but perceive Chinese investments in energy sector differently. The Czech Republic perceives those investments more negatively than Poland because its emerging discourse has as core political issues, whereas Polish one has economic issues. Even more, Poland shows a constant political support towards Chinese investments in energy sector, whereas the Czech Republic does not show the same constant development when its government or president is changed.
