China at the Crossroads: Economic Reforms in Light of Lianghui
When and Where
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
22/F, United Centre, 95 Queensway
China, the world’s largest economy in terms of purchasing power, is at a crossroads where it needs to make several important decisions. How should China tackle its slowing economic growth? How can it resolve the issue of overcapacity with “supply-side structural reform”? What types of reforms are needed and how likely are they to be implemented? How should China balance economic growth with environmental protection? These are only some of the critical issues that the Chinese government will be addressing at the upcoming 2017 Lianghui, the annual meetings of China’s top legislative and consultative bodies – the People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and National People’s Congress (NPC).
As the landmark event approaches, CKGSB Professor of Economics Xu Chenggang—who was the recipient of the 2016 ‘China Economics Prize’—will shed light on the key economic challenges and reforms needed in China, against the backdrop of its political and social developments. Join us for this exclusive session that will better prepare you to make sense of the upcoming decisions from China.
