    C40 Cities: Low Emission Development in Action | Columbia Global Centers

    Fangjia Hutong No.46 Theatre, Dongcheng, Beijing, China, 100006 - Beijing,

    Emission and climate risks are becoming increasing threats to the world, particularly for the urban life. Mayors and their cities have direct authority over the most important sources of emissions as well as climate adaption policies, with agriculture, electricity generation, and industrial emissions as the only possible exception. The cities actions have been under estimated when most climate discussion focus on national government. In the absence of tangible outcomes from intern-governmental efforts to reduce GHG emission, it is increasingly critical that mayors of the world's greatest cities are taking concrete actions which demonstrate that preventing catastrophic climate change is possible. The talk will outline how cities are taking climate leadership through sharing the findings of a C40 quantitative survey of climate the climate leadership cities, including Beijing and Shanghai.

    At a time when many economists are arguing that China needs to promote domestic consumption, Chandran Nair of the Global Institute For Tomorrow casts doubt on the idea that the western model of consumer-driven growth can be replicated in Asia. Mr Nair argues that economic policy needs to be realigned to avoid catastrophic outcomes arising from the relentless pursuit of consumption-led growth at a time when resource constraints are too obvious to deny. He calls for bans on some forms of consumption, for resources to be re-priced and for the state to play the all-important role.

Feng Hu of China Water Risk will lay out a snapshot of the looming liquidity squeeze, as well as how rising water risks and a shifting regulatory landscape could affect trillions of RMB worth of economic output and spill over into the financial markets. And China’s water crisis is not just China’s problem, he says: policies that are “good for China” may be adverse surprises for everyone else.

    Economic Challenges Facing Asia and the World: Looking Ahead | Asia Society

    Economic Challenges Facing Asia and the World: Looking Ahead | Asia Society

    9 Justice Drive, Admiralty, Hong Kong - Hong Kong,

    Global economic growth of 3.75 percent is expected this year, rising to 4 percent the following year, largely due to positive developments among the advanced countries. Yet the emerging markets that kept the global economy afloat during the crisis are weakening, with their economic cycles turning and growth slowing. What are the principal economic challenges facing Asia and the world in the decades ahead? What will growth look like? Will emerging economies continue to lead global expansion or will they fall into the ‘middle income trap’? Will income inequality continue to widen? Will poverty be substantially reduced by the end of the century? Is capitalism still the best system? Are the ideas of the Chicago School of Economics still relevant? In this inauguration event of the Chicago Economics Society in Asia, Chicago Booth School of Business professor Kevin Murphy and University of Hong Kong professor Richard Wong will discuss with Ronnie C. Chan, Co-Chair of the Asia Society the economic challenges facing the region and the rest of the world.

    By 2025, China and India will be two of the world’s four largest economies, with bilateral economic ties ranking among the 10 most important worldwide. In “The Silk Road Rediscovered”, author Anil Gupta analyzes the growing corporate linkages between India and China as pioneering companies rediscover the fabled silk road which joined their nations in ancient times. Winning each other’s markets is also making them stronger and whetting their appetite for further global expansion. How have Indian companies such as Tata Consultancy Services, Mahindra Tractors and Sundaram Fasteners figured out how to win in China? What lessons do they have to offer other Indian companies? How have Chinese firms such as Lenovo, Huawei and Haier committed to India, and are they realizing the fruits of this commitment? Should company executives be looking to adopt a global rather than local perspective and what are their on-the-ground experiences? Join a dialogue with the author of ”The Silk Road Rediscovered”, Dr Anil K Gupta and Alan Rosling, former Executive Director of Tata Sons Limited.

    Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims in India, 5th-12th Centuries | Asia Society

    Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims in India, 5th-12th Centuries | Asia Society

    9 Justice Drive, Admiralty, Hong Kong - Hong Kong,

    Several hundred Chinese pilgrims travelled to India between the 5th and the 12th centuries, seeking authentic teachings and authoritative texts in the Buddhist homeland. The most famous are Faxian, Xuanzang, and Yijing, who left written accounts of their travels. For all these pilgrims, seeing works of art—which they encountered at temples, monasteries, and private shrines across India—was an essential part of their Buddhist education. This lecture recounts their journeys across India, highlights the schools of Indian art they would have encountered, and draws from their writings to describe what they saw, and what they learned from their encounters in the Indian Buddhist holy land.

    China’s Traditional Statecraft in the XXI Century | ThinkIN China

    The elemental sense of centrality of any polity takes very different forms, ranging from the quiet certitudes of the Kingdom of Denmark to that well-known Chinese construct, the Tianxia (whose logographs 天下 have been much seen in the Japanese press of late, their Kanji versions being identical). Literally “under heaven” , short for “all under heaven” or more meaningfully, “the rule of all humans”, it defines an ideal national and international system of ever-expanding concentric circles centered on a globally benevolent emperor, now Xi Jinping or more correctly perhaps, the seven-headed standing committee of the Politburo.

In the factories and farms where these interns work, labor abuse is endemic.

    Has Beijing shifted its Korea policy from North to South? Why don’t Xi and Kim get along? Is Kim, back from his 40 day retreat, really in control? What is Pyongyang’s playbook– is the recent charm offensive for real? How will President Park Geun-hye in Seoul respond to the overtures from the North? Are we on the cusp of new, friendlier chapter in inter-Korean relations? How about the North Korea-Japan deal to resolve the ‘abduction’ issue? If it goes through, what will North Korea get? Can Abe and Kim sell it domestically? And where do all these developments and potential breakthroughs leave the U.S. and its ‘pivot’ to Asia?

    This presentation will address the reasons behind the riddle of love and hate of globalization. Chanda argues that while concerns are justified, they are not the result of some policy called “globalization”, but the consequences of an accelerated process of interconnectedness. Today the problems emerge at unprecedented speed and are more visible, leading one to blame the process rather than examine the driving force behind it. What are the economic and technological forces of globalization? How did the history of science, politics, commerce and religion create today's international system? What is the future of globalization?

All the most important imperial institutions of old Beijing were placed either alongside or directly upon the axis. "The Central Axis of Beijing" tells the story of this commanding stretch from when it was first laid out during the Mongol Yuan dynasty, to when it was condemned after the communist takeover, right up until the 2008 Olympics where the axis enjoyed a big comeback when it was prolonged up to the Olympic Village.

    Urban Water Supply-Demand Management Under Uncertainty | Harvard China Project

    Water scarcity has always been a challenge in water resource management. Now coupled with climate change, rapid population growth, and increasing urbanization, many urban centers are struggling to meet escalating water demand. Improper management can result in large and severe economic, social, and environmental consequences. The conventional “close-the-gap” and “all types of water are the same” type of management can no longer serve its purpose. Responding to the challenges in future planning, there has been a change in paradigm, from a single-sourced, “meet demand” approach to a diverse, “risk management” framework.

    India in Asia: Greater Engagement | Young China Watchers, Shanghai

    9 Qinghai Lu, near Nanjing Xi Lu Jing'an, Shanghai 200040 - Shanghai,

    The early 1990s brought two profound changes triggering a more engaged Indian foreign policy generally and in Asia more specifically: the end of the Cold War and the adoption of market reforms. Primarily motivated by economic interests, India announced a "Look East" policy focused on the economic powerhouses to the East. The Indian election several months ago of a new and visionary prime minister committed to economic growth will almost certainly result in an even more engaged foreign policy, especially toward Asia east of India. This BJP governing party, with a stable majority in parliament, is firmly behind Prime Minister Modi's policies.

    China not only currently faces the challenge of overhauling its economic growth model, but has an urgent need to reform its pension system as well. In particular, China’s rapidly ageing population fundamentally threatens the solvency of its main retirement scheme, the defined benefits, pay-as-you-go urban enterprise pension system. Ma Jun, chief economist at the People’s Bank of China, argues that unless the programme is fundamentally reformed, its unfunded liabilities will balloon from 18 trillion RMB in 2013 to 68 trillion by 2033. Professor Dong Keyong will discuss how China can address this looming crisis and the challenges and opportunities it poses for the government.

    Beijing Energy & Environment Roundtable (BEER) | Beijing Energy Network

    With stringent environmental policies and weak economic conditions, cracks are appearing in Chinese thermal coal markets. Chinese government released a slew of direct interventions in 2014 - after quality restrictions and import tariffs failed to deliver – in curbing coal imports to help domestic miners. However, owing to a lack of real demand growth in 2014, the oversupply situation worsened and domestic coal prices fell to multi-year lows. As a result, domestic coal producers are struggling to survive. We estimate the thermal market remains several years away from rebalancing.

    China’s Emerging Middle Class: Will They Have a Political Impact | Foreign Correspondent's Club of China

    ‘A growing middle class inevitably leads to democracy’, this widespread hypothesis is partly based on Barrington Moore’s “Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy: Lord and Peasant in the Making of the Modern World” (1966) and his famous assumption “no bourgeoisie, no democracy.” But is it really the case in China? Dr. Alice Ekman, Research Fellow for China at the French Institute of International Relations will address this question by taking into account the distinctive features of this population group in China, its evolving relations with the Communist Party as well as the emerging generation gaps.

    Oriental Plaza 3/F, Tower E3 1 East Chang An Avenue. Beijing, 100738. China - Beijing,

    China launched a new urbanization program for the period 2014–2020. It is intended to benefit China’s social and economic development by focusing on integrated urban and rural development, creating city clusters and promoting sustainable urban development. However, the design and implementation of the new urbanization program may also bring new social and economic problems, such as widening the gap in urban development between different regions in China, leading to the formation of a new urban poor class. To minimize negative effects of the new policy, Professor Hu suggests ways to deal with the relationships between the market and government and between economic and social development in the process of urbanization. The key is to allow the market to determine the flows of capital, land and people in the process of urbanization to achieve sustainable urban development.

    Defending Human Rights in China: A New Era of Doom? | Foreign Correspondents' Club of China

    4 Liangmahe South Rd, Chaoyang, Beijing, China, 100600 - Beijing,

    China’s human rights movement appears to be doomed. The state is signaling through the upcoming trials of civil rights lawyers, the impending enactment of the National Security Law and the likely passage of the Foreign NGO Law that it is less tolerant and more autocratic than many expected. Legal scholar Eva Pils (King’s College London) has been examining the latest waves of repression and their impact on human rights defenders–the individuals and groups. Please join her as she explains the current environment for human rights in China, challenging the wide current perception of doom, and discusses the outlook for foreign and domestic engagement with human rights.

Since China’s accession to the WTO, U.S.-China trade and investment has boomed and we find ourselves on the verge of a new boom facilitated by the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Bilateral Investment Treaty negotiations. Join William Duff, Chief of the Political Economic Section U.S. Consulate in Shanghai, as he discusses the implications of these negotiations and their potential to be WTO-plus for the bilateral relationship, spurring innovation and new services.
