EU leaders tackle the thorny topic of globalization at a summit on Friday with deep divisions between proponents of free markets and others seeking more protections, most notably France.The most divisive issue is a proposal spearheaded by pro-EU Macron to hand Brussels more powers to control Chinese investments in Europe's key industries.Macron, who beat far-right leader Marine Le Pen in last month's run-off, is asking that the summit launch measures towards screening investments by China in Europe that have startled some Europeans.The summit is less divided on finding ways to set up stronger anti-dumping defenses against China and other countries.EU leaders are expected to urge EU institutions to swiftly implement anti-dumping measures currently under negotiation in Brussels.
